SAGHS Publishes New Book

Remembering World War I, edited by Larry W. Luckett.


This year marks the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I. Thoughts of World War I bring visions of trench warfare, no man’s land, and deadly machine gun fire causing almost countless casualties. On the home front the war had other realities to those who served in support of American troops overseas. Individual articles provide glimpses of personal participation, injury, and death. The stories help us keep memories alive before the remembrance fades. 


This new book is an anthology of family memories and events from 100 years ago, with thirty articles by members of SAGHS in three sections—Home Front, Western Front, and Post-War. Includes a genealogy research bibliography to guide further individual research. Soft cover, 112 pages, four pages color illustrations; fully indexed by names, military units, battles, and locations. $24.00 plus $4 shipping and handling. Purchase online or download a form to mail in with your check.
