Rate this:
This history of the American ambulance drivers corps during World War I is also a companion research reference to some of the greatest writers, editors, and philosophers of the 20th century. Young men from all parts of the country made starry eyed commitments to serving in Europe, finding a brutal reality for which Harvard or Yale had not prepared them. Among the most famous were John Dos Passos, Ernest Hemingway, E.E. Cummings, Edward Weeks, and Malcolm Cowley. Hansen (English, U. of the Pacific) has gathered together letters, writings, and research to provide the historical landscape responsible for some of the best war literature ever produced. Includes photographs. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
