314th Infantry Amazon book Yanks : The Epic Story of the American Army in World War I by John Eisenhower ISBN 0684863049Yanks : The Epic Story of the American Army in World War I
By John Eisenhower

This history focuses entirely on the challenges, victories, sacrifices (320,500 casualties), and long-term consequences of the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) in Europe during World War I.
According to Eisenhower (brigadier general, ret.; Agent of Destiny: The Life and Times of General Winfield Scott), the AEF was originally meant to be amalgamated with the Allied armies in Europe,
but through the stubborn insistence of the Wilson administration and Gen. "Black" Jack Pershing, the Americans fought under their own colors.
This well-written work demonstrates how a small, ill-equipped force grew into an awesome fighting machine and was led to victory after victory.

314th Infantry Amazon book The Doughboys: America and the First World War by Gary Mead ISBN 1585670618The Doughboys: America and the First World War
By Gary Mead

Making a strong case that America's moral and material contributions were vital to the Allied war effort, Financial Times journalist Mead
also argues convincingly that the performance of the American Expeditionary ForceAcomprised of young "doughboys"Ahas been systematically underrated.
Mead uses firsthand accounts to reconstruct the AEF's operational experiences, which largely reflected the problems of improvising a multimillion-man army in little over a year.
He is particularly successful at portraying the frontline experience, with its mixture of trench and open warfare, presenting the doughboys as enthusiastic fighters who learned quickly when given a ch

By Robert H. Ferrell

American fighting men had never seen the likes of it before.
The great battle of the Meuse-Argonne was the costliest conflict in American history, with 26,000 men killed and tens of thousands wounded.
Involving 1.2 million American troops over 47 days, it ended on November 11-what we now know as Armistice Day-and brought an end to World War I, but at a great price.
Distinguished historian Robert Ferrell now looks back at this monumental struggle to create the definitive study of the battle-and to determine just what made it so deadly.

314th Infantry Amazon book The First World War by John Keegan ISBN 0375700455The First World War
By John Keegan

Despite the avalanche of books written about the First World War in recent years, there have been comparatively few books that deliver a comprehensive account of the war and its campaigns from start t
he First World War fills the gap superbly. As readers familiar with Keegan's previous books (including The Second World War and Six Armies in Normandy) know,
he's a historian of the old school. He has no earth-shattering new theories to challenge the status quo, no first-person accounts to tug on the emotions --
what he does have, though, is a gift for talking the lay person through the twists and turns of a complex narrative in a way that is never less than accessible or engaging.

314th Infantry Amazon book The Price of Glory: Verdun 1916 by Sir Alistair Horne ISBN 0140170413The Price of Glory: Verdun 1916
By Sir Alistair Horne

The battle of Verdun lasted ten months. It was a battle in which at least 700,000 men fell, along a front of fifteen miles.
ts aim was less to defeat the enemy than bleed him to death and a battleground whose once fertile terrain is even now a haunted wilderness.
Alistair Horne's classic work, continuously in print for over fifty years, is a profoundly moving, sympathetic study of the battle and the men who fought there.
It shows that Verdun is a key to understanding the First World War to the minds of those who waged it, the traditions that bound them and the world that gave them the opportunity.

By R. Jackson Marshall

World War I was the world's first "modern" war. It introduced weapons such as the machine gun, poison gas, the airplane, and the armored tank.
Despite the deadliness of such weapons of destruction and the horror of massive artillery bombardments, generals on both sides persisted in a primitive, outdated concept of waging war.
he result was an awful trench warfare that inflicted a staggering loss of life among the soldiers who fought on the Western Front.
Jackson Marshall skillfully describes the experiences of the North Carolina doughboys who endured the fright and hardships of fighting on the battlefields of Belgium and France.
