Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Beneath the canvas of a huge hangar mechanicians are at work on the motor of an airplane. Outside, on the borders of an aviation field, others loiter awaiting their aerial charge s return from the sky. Near the hangar stands a hut-shaped tent. In front of it several short-winged biplanes are lined up; inside it three or four young men are lolling in wicker chairs. They wear the uniform of French army aviators. These uniforms, and the grim-looking machine guns mounted on the upper planes of the little aircraft, are the only warlike note in a pleasantly peaceful scene. The war seems very remote. It is hard to believe that the greatest of all battles--Verdun--rages only twenty-five miles to the north, and that the field and hangars and mechanicians and aviators and airplanes are all playing a part therein.

Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. One day in January, 1915, I saw Jim McConnell in front of the Court House at Carthage, North Carolina. Well, he said, I m all fixed up and am leaving on Wednesday. Where for? I asked. I ve got a job to drive an ambulance in France, was his answer. And then he went on to tell me, first, that as he saw it the greatest event in history was going on right at hand and that he would be missing the opportunity of a lifetime if he did not see it. These Sand Hills, he said will be here forever, but the war won t; and so I m going. Then, as an afterthought, he added: And I ll be of some use, too, not just a sight-seer looking on; that wouldn t be fair. So he went. He joined the American ambulance service in the Vosges, was mentioned more than once in the orders of the day for conspicuous bravery in saving wounded under fire, and received the much-coveted Croix de Guerre. Meanwhile, he wrote interesting letters home. And his point of view changed, even as does the point of view of all Americans who visit Europe. From the attitude of an adventurous spirit anxious to see the excitement, his letters showed a new belief that any one who goes to France and is not able and willing to do more than his share--to give everything in him toward helping the wounded and suffering--has no business there.
