Wounded in action during the Argonne Offensive, he makes his way on foot past the surging tide of men and matériel headed into the fight to find an ambulance far behind the front. He spends 67 days at bed rest followed by months of recovery in several military hospitals.
Private Safstrom describes in detail his experiences on the front lines, his travels through the United States, England, and France, and the hospitals at Issoudun and Bordeaux. Included are several photographs of Safstrom and his family before, during, and after the war, a short biography, notes to accompany the diary text, and a map showing his journey through France.
