Preface
 
On the shell-torn slopes of the Borne de Cornouiller -- amid the ghostly ruins of the Bois de Beuge beyond towering Montfaucon --
in the toilsome marches of weary nights through the black wreckage of a devastated France --
there is written the real history of the 316th Infantry Regiment. The Meuse and the Argonne spell its glory.
 
The roll of its dead and maimed proclaims the measure of its sacrifice. The ordeals of their living comrades attest its devotion.
The sum of their efforts is inscribed in the annals of victory --- a page in the immortal book of the American Expeditionary Forces.
 
No thought of self-emulation inspires the record here set forth. It is a plain narrative of one American regiment -- its trials and triumphs.
