Overview

A new critical edition of A Journal of The Great War, edited by Jenny Thompson, with two new essays that explore the broader story of DawesÕ war experience.

First published in 1921, A Journal of the Great War provides a fascinating glimpse into the challenges faced by the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) during the United StatesÕ 18-month involvement in World War I. During the war, Dawes served as General Purchasing Agent for the AEF and also as confidant to General Pershing. His journal, written while he was stationed in France from August 1917 to July 1919, offers a behind-the-scenes look at the power struggles and political maneuvering that took place among American and European political and military leaders as they sought to fight the war as an allied force. Part document of life in wartime France, part war diary, and part mentation on the means of exercising power, DawesÕ journal is a unique contribution to the literature of World War I. Includes photographs.
