1916. Mademoiselle Miss: Letters from an American Girl Serving with the Rank of Lieutenant in a French Army Hospital at the Front. The straightforward, intensely interesting story of an American girl told in her letters, and describing her experiences in nursing the desperately wounded somewhere on that three-hundred-mile battle front. The letters are written with a firm touch, yet with extreme delicacy in details. We gain the most intimate view of a battlefield, greater than the Marne, or Verdun, or even Armageddon; for the author shows us the battle of devoted men and women with Death himself-the hard, unremitting struggle to drag back from his clutches the salvage of war and to restore to life and usefulness men already as good as dead. This volume is one of the truly valuable contributions thus far made to the literature of the great war.
