Soldier

Chapter 4 is all about WWI. One of my personal weaknesses as a reader of history is a total inability to concentrate on detailed accounts of battles.

The one bit that I earmarked in this chapter was the following, just after the Meuse-Argonne offensive, which ended up with 117,000 American dead in 47 days:

“Harry had lost 20 pounds. He could hardly believe what he had been through. Terrible as it had been, it was also “the most terrific experience of my life.” He couldn’t help feeling proud.” (132)

Next up: Harry gets into local politics, complete with The Machine!
