Uncle Sam's Boys, Volume 1by H Irving Hancock
These stimulating stories are among the best of their class. They breathe the life and spirit of our army of today (or at least, as it was in 1910), and in which Uncle Sam's Boys fought with a courage and devotion excelled by none in the World War. This series tells the story of a soldier's life from the rookie stage until he has qualified for an officer's commission.
• * In "Uncle Sam's Boys in the Ranks," Hal Overton and Noll Terry, decide at the age of eighteen to enlist in the Regular Army, and receive their first drillings in the art of being a soldier at the recruit rendezvous outside just New York City. From there Hal and Noll go westward, to Fort Clowdry, in the Colorado mountains, where the young soldiers go through their first experiences of the strenuous side of Army life, stopping deserters, foiling train robbers, and under fire on a lonely sentry post, proving themselves the sort of American youths of whom the best soldiers are made.
• * In "Uncle Sam's Boys on Field Duty" Hal and Noll go further in learning the work of the soldier; with good and highly adventurous work in the practical problems of field life, including supplying their company with meat by hunting, in capturing a desperate character badly wanted by the state authorities, and in other adventures as they work towards getting appointments as corporals.
• * "Uncle Sam's Boys in The Ranks" and "Uncle Sam's Boys on Field Duty" were published in 1910 and 1911, respectively, and the original eight illustrations are included.
