    2. I received a 1918 copy as a gift from a friend who knew I'd be interested in what passed for the writing of an uneducated army guy back then. Some of Bill's jokes felt too clever for someone whom the author expected us to laugh at as an ignoramus at other times. Illustrations didn't add much to the story.

    3. Dere Mable: Love Letters of a Rookie by E. Streeter and illustrated by Bill Breck, published in 1918, was a book I inherited from my Aunt Mable, who died before I was born.
