Magnificant Collection of Photographs

This book is a magnificant collection of photographs. There is just enough writing to explain what the photographs show. Combined they make a pretty good history of the United States involvement in World War I. While the American involvement in that was was much later and much smaller than that of their allies, they came at a critical time. The British, French and German armies had bled each other nearly to death. All of a sudden the arrival of a million Americans with more on the way tipped the balance. There is also a suggestion that the tactics used by the Americans had been upgraded from the march in formation tactics used in the early days to more of a 'fire and maneuver' tactic that is much more suited to attacks in the days of machine guns. I do not know if this was an American invention, or if the other allied armies had learned this as well by this time in the war. The key though to this book is the pictures. I can remember trying to find pictures of World War I some years back and had great difficulty. Here all of a sudden here they are.
