"This book is not a tactical study of the operations of a combat division; nor is it merely a colorful account of a series of actions, such as might be written by a non-military observer. A sincere effort has been made to produce, in readable form, a bird's-eye view of the whole war, an intimate history of the operations of the Division and a correct record of facts that embrace sufficient data to make the book of some military value.
" The manuscript has been revised by the commanders of regiments and of independent battalions of the Division. As published it bears the stamp of their official approval. "
