Davis, Richard Harding: With the French in France and Salonika. V1. 29 Dec 2010
Richard Harding Davis (April 18, 1864 — April 11, 1916) was a journalist and writer of fiction and drama, known foremost as the first famous American war correspondent who covered the Spanish-American War, the Second Boer War, and the First World War. His writing greatly assisted the career of Theodore Roosevelt and he also played a major role in the evolution of the American magazine. His influence extended to the world of fashion and he is credited with making the clean-shaven look popular among men at the turn of the 20th century.
This book was written during the three last months of 1915 and the first month of this year in the form of letters from France, Greece, Serbia, and England. The writer visited ten of the twelve sectors of the French front, seeing most of them from the first trench, and was also on the French-British front in the Balkans. Outside of Paris the French cities visited were Verdun, Amiens, St. Die, Arras, Chalons, Nancy, and Rheims. What he saw served to strengthen his admiration for the French army and, as individuals and as a nation, for the French people, and to increase his confidence in the ultimate success of their arms.
