Description

From the original book blurb... Every soldier knows the training camps were located not for training purposes, but to bring money to favored communities. Every soldier knows that of the money not deliberately mis-spent, fully one-half was wasted because it was administered by miserable incompetents appointed for political advantage. Every soldier knows what lin infinitesimal fraction of wartime expenditures ever reached the, battlefield. Every soldier knows that both his comfort at the rear and his safety on the battlefield were sacrificed. Every soldier knows that he had to depend upon weapons, munitions and supplies obtained from our allies. Every soldier knows that throughout the war his interest was sacrificed to that of the slacker and profiteer. Every soldier knows that the only suggestion of national economy has been to economize at his expense. -Chicago Tribune, May 21, 1920. * * * * * From the PUBLISHER'S NOTE.
