This is the first of a three volume set of letters written like commentaries by a WWI soldier to his family.
From his arrival at boot camp through his first year as a soldier deployed to Germany, his letters tell the story like so many soldiers, about missing home, family and the uncertain future.
Each letter is presented in it’s original form followed by a transcription of the letter. Books two and three are the letters of 1918 and 1919 and his return home. With book three containing memorabilia he had collected throughout his tour of duty.
