Abstract

234 Southwestern Historical Quarterly October seems to transport the reader to another time with its markedly beauti- ful literary style. Sheahan’s knowledge of the French language makes his accounts particularly compelling for anyone seeking a better understand- ing of relationships between Allied soldiers and the perceptions of the French concerning American contributions. The second section of the book focuses on Hogg’s and Wythe’s letters and writings. Readers interested in a deep, detailed military account will be most pleased with this section. Additionally, those seeking a connec- tion to Texas history will be pleased to learn that both Hogg and Wythe are Texans, trained in the state, and ser ved near one another in Europe. Those seeking to evaluate the American contribution to victory in World War I will enjoy Wythe’s detailed battle accounts that describe full Ameri- can militar y effectiveness during late August and September 1918. Readers will certainly enjoy this grouping of fascinating accounts, which Bernhard has successfully edited into a single volume. An endear- ing aspect of the book is how each account seems to encompass both the horror and the normality that even the most terrible wars offer to those enduring them.
