Historical Setting: WWI

"With excitement and vivid detail, Marrin describes America's role in World War I from its belated entry in 1917, eager but unprepared, through the war at sea, in the air, and in the trenches, to the final hard-won victory. He dramatically re-creates a routine flying mission in the first fragile fighter planes, depicts how the "doughboys" lived at the front . . . and combines such general accounts with tales of individual daring and endurance. He lauds heroism in a just cause . . ." — BookList
