The great war: a guide to the service records of all the world's fighting men and volunteersUser Review - Book Verdict
Realizing that surviving veterans of World War I would be in their late nineties and that the Great War was finally passing from "living memory," Schaefer (director emeritus, Annandale, Virginia Family History Ctr.) saw the need for a guide to service records to assist those seeking World War I information. Her book is divided into three parts. The first includes a time line and background on military organization and the types of records available. The second lists alphabetically all the nations involved in the war, with each entry including a brief description of the country's wartime role, information on conscription, types of records available, and a list of suggested readings. The final section covers the war's aftermath, including a chart detailing the redrawn political boundaries. Schaefer has done an excellent job in gathering this information and presenting it clearly. Highly recommended for genealogy collections.--Linda L. McEwan, Elgin Community Coll., IL
