    EXCELLENT READ !!!!

    In America far too long the Great War of 1914-1918 has been an after thought by historians, writers, and readers. Regardless what the English and French say, the arrival of fresh young American Doughboys saved Europe from falling to German militarism domination. James Carl Nelson in Company D has taken one small unit of the American citizen army to describe the horror and humanity of the trenches. Consider the mud, cooties, and confusion as well as German veterans of three years of fighting. "Making the world safe for Democracy" was not foremost in Doughboy minds. Nelson has given the reader a micro-study of what it was like to "go over the top" into interlocking machinegun and artillery fire.

    I received this book for Father's Day 2012, and at first I was a little reluctant to read anything about WWI.  Never before had I any interest in 
    WWI, but this book changed my interest. The author did an excellent job in putting all of this together, and made the book an excellent read.
    I learned a lot about the war, and about how it was fought, and how the American's became involved. The book opened my eyes wide with
    tons of information on many aspects of the war. The book was very intense, and when the battles started I could hardly put the book down. 
    For anyone interested in learning something about WWI, this should be a must read.

    A must-read. Simply the best view of what Americans faced in combat in WWI. The standard by which all others will be measured, Nelson weaves letters, diaries, and the historical narrative seemlessly into a compelling story of the American Experience!

    This book is well written and easy to read. It is a very powerful story. The author showed how violent the war was, and what the soldiers went through. It was well researched and told the story of his grandfathers unit during WW1. Excellent read!
