Description
Though the United States was late to enter World War I, a number of idealistic young Americans wished to take part from the beginning. One of these was Avery Royce Wolf, the educated scion of a family in America's industrial heartland. Volunteering as an ambulance driver with the French Army in the Verdun sector, Royce sent back a constant stream of detailed letters describing the experience of frontline combat, including comments on strategy, the country he encountered, and the Allies' prospects for success. This rediscovered trove of brilliant letters is presented here with rare black and white photos depicting aspects of the Great War in France.
