Overview

My Hut chronicles the experiences of a YMCA secretary in France during World War One. In September 1917, William Levere sailed for France as a YMCA volunteer. Throughout the war, Levere ran a canteen for soldiers in the town of Neufchâteau, a hub of activity for the American Expeditionary Forces. He also traveled throughout the region, visiting troops along the front lines. After the Armistice, he continued his YMCA work for the U.S. Army of Occupation in Andernach, Germany.

Published for the first time nearly eight decades after it was written, My Hut is Levere's own memoir of his days of service. It brings to life the overseas adventures of one American man who sought to take part in history.
