Description

That’s War is a diary of the authentic experiences of Lt. William Arthur Sirmon from January 1, 1918 to November 12, 1918. In this WWI account of a regular soldier in the 82nd Division, 325th Infantry, you are led through ten chapters of a heartfelt, attention-grabbing journey. It starts out at Ft. Gordon, Georgia, where Sirmon was in charge of training soldiers. His story takes you across the beautiful, yet run down, terrain of France. William Arthur Sirmon spent more than four years prior to 1917 as an officer of the Philippine Constabulary, serving primarily in Mindanao, the “Island of Blood”. He was the most highly decorated soldier from Georgia, and it is believed, of the entire Great War. In February of 1919, only he and Sergeant Alvin York were awarded The Legion of Honor of France, Distinguished Service Cross and the Croix de Guerre with Palm by General Pershing. These accolades made him an honorary citizen of England and France. This diary is not completely blood and guts, but surprisingly light for the most part. It describes the day-to-day life of typical American doughboys and the obstacles they faced through the entire war. That’s War is a great read filled with excitement and humor, with education and entertainment throughout..

 
WW1 Began Today 97 Years Ago

WWI 97th AnniversaryDubbed the Great War, the First World War began on the 28th of July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918. Two giant forces, the Allies, which included the United States, United Kingdom, France, and the Russian Empire took on the Central Powers, made up of Germany, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Ottoman Empire, and the Kingdom of Bulgaria.

More than 70 million soldiers fought in the war. 20 million were injured and 9 million were killed.

It was a war that brought about great technological strides at the expense of millions of men and women.

The U.S. National Archives has a collection of photos available on Flickr of troops getting prepared for the war and returning from the battle grounds. Here are a few of those photos.
