The narrative begins with its organization in the summer of 1917 and the training at Camp Lee, and follows its progress across the ocean, arrival at Calais in June 1918, training with the British, arrival at the Western Front, and its movements and actions in France with the First Army. Concludes with the Armistice and return to the states in June 1919. [Note: most of the soldiers in the battalion hailed from Pennsylvania and the Virginias.] Includes a multi-panel fold out group photo of the battalion (taken in May 1919 at Brest, France); rosters of officers and enlisted of Company A and B and the HQ and Medical detachments; portraits of the headquarters and companies' officers and battalion sergeants; and four maps at the rear showing the battalion's movements in France.
