Brooklyn: Brooklyn Eagle Press, 1920. 256p., hardcover, blue cloth shows some mottled loss of sizing, spine ends worn and spine titling illegible, ownership signature cut out of corner of front free endpaper, but binding still intact, eminently readable.
The authors describe the lives of African American soldiers and support staff in the field in Europe, including racist treatment they endured. The YMCA comes in for special criticism for some segregationist practices. Includes black and white photo portraits of many soldiers, some of them rather small images packed onto the page. The publisher, Brooklyn Eagle, was a local newspaper.
