Overview

This documentary collection makes available a slection of the World War I remembrances compiled by the U.S. Army Military History Institute, located at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania. The Institute sent questionnaires to veterans of World War I in an effort to establish a permanent historical record of the wartime experiences of the American soldier. The World War I Survey provides a generous sampling of questionnaire reponses (over 5,500 were received) and supplements these with more personal papers - letters, diaries, and memoirs - and military unit histories. Taken together, these materials recount an unforgettable history - the war as it was really lived and remembered - and present a wealth of exciting research opportunities not only for the military historian, but for those interested in the social, psychological, and cultural aspects of the wartime experience as well.
