Arthur Clifford Kimber had the distinctive honor of bearing the first official American flag to France after the United States entered the Great War.
"Replete with excellent maps, many of Kimber's photographs, and
with an index and adequate bibliography, An American on the
Western Front is a valuable addition to the accounts of
American participants in the Great War."--The Journal of
America's Military Past
"A stand-out...remarkable...An American on the Western Front is both historically valuable and deeply moving. Patrick Gregory and Elizabeth Nurser are to be commended for bringing this lost aviator back to life in an exceptionally well-researched and well-illustrated volume." --Journal of Military History
