The American Reinforcement in the World War
The American Reinforcement in the World War
By Thomas G. Frothingham
Doubleday Page, 1927, 427 pp

In remarkably brief scope the author has given us what is probably the best general account of the American contribution to victory. By far the larger part of the book is taken up with a review of conditions when the United States entered the conflict, and the story of the recruiting, equipping and transporting of the forces. The author has been supplied with a goodly amount of material by Mr. Newton D. Baker, so that in a sense the book may be regarded as the first presentation of the subject from the viewpoint of the War Department and the officials directly responsible.
