Abstract:

"World War I was more than a decade in the past before America was ready for a book like Company K. William March, who had seen the fighting in Europe at first hand, had no apologies to offer, no patriotic slogans to shout, and no illustions to sustain. In this book he undertook to reveal what war was really like to its smallest components--to 113 men who made up an infantry comapny. Really a collection of tightly related episodes rather than a novel, Company K involves the reader intimately in the down-to-earth doings of a group of American fighting men of every sort, in their desperate loneliness, their reckless humor, their cruelties, their fears, their offhand immorality, their profound nobility. Originally published in 1933, Company K still holds its place as a true and penetrating picture of the world's first "great" war"--Back cover.
