Overview

World War I (1914-1918) is often called the "forgotten war," but the U.S. soldiers who went to fight with their European allies on the Western Front brought home unforgettable stories. Using excerpts from letters and diaries, author Susan Provost Beller shares the experiences of the Doughboys fighting "over there" in Europe. Far from home, the soldiers recorded the horrors of trench fighting, the smells of battle involving chemical weapons, and the determination needed to move the war out of the trenches and drive the enemy back into Germany. These accounts give us a better understanding of the war that is often cited as the impetus for the rise of the United States as a world power.
