This admirable account of the part played by the American army on the Western Front is in three volumes. This first volume is concerned with the Second Battle of the Marne covering the period May-August 1918 and the first forty or so pages provides an historical background to the fighting, supported by good, clear maps and interesting photographs. The rest of the book is taken up with a three-day battlefield tour with a map for each day, taking in Chateau Thierry, Belleau Wood, Soissons, Fismes and all places of interest in between with an account of any actions. The tour ends back in Paris.
