Excerpt from The War in Eastern Europe

When war broke out in August, 1914, I went immediately to Europe as correspondent of the Metropolitan Magazine, visiting England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, and Belgium, and seeing fighting with three armies. I returned to New York in February, 1915; and a month later, Boardman Robinson and I started for Eastern Europe. This book is a record of that second trip.

It was to be a three-months' flying journey: we were going to see Italy enter the war, Venice destroyed by the Austrians; be in Serbia in time for the last stand of the Serbs; watch Rimiania plimge into the conflict; stand by at the fall of Constantinople; accompany the Russian steam-roller to Berlin; and spend a month in the Caucasus reporting barbarically colored battles between Cossacks and Turks.

As a matter of fact, we were gone seven months and didn't see one of these grand dramatic climaxes. Except for getting mixed up with the great Russian retreat, and flitting through the Balkans at the beginning of the German drive, it was our luck everywhere to arrive during a comparative lull in the hostilities.
