Through a unique combination of skill, circumstance and strong personal motivation, Private William J. Graham (Company B, 103rd Military Police Battalion, 28th Division/First Army) delivers one of the most compelling, detailed, and true real-time eyewitness accounts of an American soldier’s W.W. 1 experience ever recorded and available in print now for the first time.Over four thousand miles from his home, family and work as a Philadelphia mounted policeman, thirty-nine year old William J. Graham found himself fighting as a detached field M.P.

in war-devastated northern France as one of over two million men and women who made up the American Expeditionary Forces in the bloody latter half of 1918. Through his keen eyes and artful powers of description, it is not difficult to imagine yourself slogging through the muddy blood-spattered fields of the Western Front as the earth trembles and German shells scream overhead…where hunger, “cooties”, and death are constant companions. Private Graham’s uncensored journal of over 650 hand-written pages was penned by him not from memory while resting comfortably by a warm fire in a stuffed chair…but incredibly in France while the events he describes actually unfolded around him under raw filthy field conditions.Richly illustrated with over 300 rare original and previously unpublished images, this book gives readers an authentic and powerfully moving description of the horrific sights and emotions of Americans at war with the German “Hun” in the world’s first-ever global conflict.

This work is of unique value to everyone but especially to the historian or student of the period , serving as an accurate and superbly detailed description of what many U.S. fighting men experienced “doing their bit” while struggling to survive yet another day…”Somewhere in France”!
