Very nice pics Doughboy - were you over recently? It must have cost the proverbial arm and a leg from the States! Nicely taken. My congratulations.

The very interesting story of the Lost Battalion is quite well told in book by that name, Johnson & another author, available in inexpensive reprint of 1937? book.

Paul,

Yes, that book is indeed in my personal libray. The authors are the historian Thomas M. Johnson and Official War Correspondant (who personally met the surviving members of the Lost Battalion and Whittlesey himself) Fletcher Pratt. It is a very good read. I suggest it to many.
