This new edition of This Mans Army restores to print a viewpoint on the American experience in WWI valuable for its literary merits and historical accuracy. Wyeth (18941981), the son of a prominent New York medical family, had completed a masters degree in French at Princeton when the United States entered WW I and he enlisted. He served from 19171919 in the Interpreters Corps as a second lieutenant in the Thirty-third Division deployed to France and Belgium. This Mans Army is an autobiographical account of his service years, detailing his duties as interpreter, messenger, and sentry. Wyeth recounts the devastating effects of warfare on the French countryside, interactions of American and French forces, and the lighthearted camaraderie of soldiers on leave.
