Description
Telling the dramatic true story of five bright young Harvard men who took up the call to arms in the spring of 1917, when the United States entered World War I, the author of The Remains of Company D: A Story of the Great War chronicles how each met his fate in the maelstrom of the Western Front. James Carl Nelson delves into the motivations, experiences, and decisions of this educated quintet, and by extension traces the brilliant young officer class that left its collegiate and post-collegiate pursuits to enlist and lead America's rough-and-ready doughboys in the effort to finish "the war to end all wars."

"Using the letters and diaries of five Harvard-educated men, [Nelson] has constructed a riveting, often brutal, and moving chronicle of young men thrust into command positions.... An outstanding but often disturbing examination of the process of turning young men into hardened instruments of warfare."Booklist
