This final volume deals with the Meuse-Argonne battlefields. The background history goes back in time and gives a brief account of the Argonne campaign of 1792 against the Prussians before coming on to the Great War, covering the 1914-1918 fighting in the next twenty-two pages supported by good maps and battlefield photos. Then follow details of two guided tours round the scenes of the fighting, the first starts from Verdun and takes in Buzancy, Varennes, Vauquois, Clermont-en-Argonne and Sainte Menehould, some 155 km. The fighting at Vauquois is described in detail and the ravaged state of that battlefield is still very evident today. The next trip, 130 km, starts out from Sainte Menehould and goes on to Varennes, Montfaucon, Grandpre, Vienne-le-Chateau, La Gruerie Wood, Le Four de Paris,La Hayte Chevanchee and La Chalade. There are excellent accounts of the fighting in the areas covered by the tours.
These three volumes together add up to a good, well illustrated record of the Americans in France.
