This is an invaluable guide to own for those with an interest in World War I. Not only does it cover the popular memoirs from the war, but the little known gems as well. It is neatly laid out according to country and offers several useful appendices and a helpful recommended list, which so far I have yet to be disappointed by. It also includes important publication information. This was a well thought out venture, that I'm sure offers more personal satisfaction to this distinguished author then acclaim, but to a reader of World War I literature, such as myself, it has no equal. I hope a new edition does come out one day, as many new personal accounts have been published recently and I'd certainly enjoy reading Professor Lengel's take on them. He states that There's a Devil in the Drum, by J.F. Lucy is perhaps the best of all personal accounts to come out of the war, and I whole heartedly agree with him. He gives unbiased opinions on which personal accounts are worth reading as well as those which offer little of interest. In an age where so few veterans remain from the First World War, it is now more important then ever that we hear their voices and this bibliography paves the way. Well done.

Lengel has done an outstanding job producing a bibliography covering a sparsely-covered section of WWI history.

By his own admission, this list is in no-way exhaustive, but he certainly has done a good job of covering the genre.

His notations for each entry are very useful, but I would like to have seen a distict reference to what specific campaign(s) that the memoir covers. He has done this for most, but are notably absent on others.

However, from what I have seen, this has been the best coverage of the topic bar none. Well done, and hopefully he will be taking entries for a new revised edition somewhere down the line.

This is an excellent guide to the writings of soldiers from World War 1.
