              In 1917, shortly after the United States' declaration of war on Germany, Guy Emerson Bowerman, Jr., enlisted in the American army's ambulance service. Like other young ambulance drivers-Hemingway, Dos Passos, Cummings, Cowley-Bowerman longed to see the show. He was glad to learn ...that the ambulance units were leaving for France right away. For seventeen months, until the armistice of November 1918, Bowerman kept an almost daily diary of the war. To read his words today is to live the war with an immediacy and vividness of detail that is astonishing.
