Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Inspired by stories told by his great-uncle, Harris describes the experience of New York's Seventh Regiment and the losses it suffered in France near the end of the First World War. Made up largely of volunteer "society boys" from uptown Manhattan and the wealthier suburbs of New York, the regiment also included farmers and the sons of small-town merchants. On Sept. 29, 1918, they attacked the formidable Hindenburg Line; at huge cost to the regiment, they helped break Germany's hold and bring the war to a close. Harris, a freelance journalist based in Vermont, makes extensive use of dramatic accounts of battle by the soldiers themselves, found in letters and articles. Annotation c.

    Thru the eyes of the soldiers

    This was a GREAT read! The author utilizes the words and letters of the men who were there to bring the realism of WWI into the lap of the reader. A must read for WWI buffs!

    Gripping History

    A terrific account of an almost forgotten period in world history. Before the 'Greatest Generation,' this group of soldiers fought, died, and created a legend. Like 'Glory' in the Civil War, this tale brings to life the bonds of war... and the lives of unsung heros
