Excerpt from Letters of a Soldier

Our people have justifiable pride in the character of our army which fought in the World War. The character of that army was truly great, and worthy of the great cause in which it served. Its character, however, was great and noble only because of the high individual purpose and character of the men who composed it.

The mass of the people realize in a general way the worth of the men who made up the American Army; but in the book "Letters of a Soldier" the public will have opportunity to appreciate in intimate manner the moral and military standards of a soldier of the 27th Division who was representative of the best in that army, and who gave up his life in the Battle of the La Selle River, France, October 17th, 1918.

The "Letters of a Soldier" were written by First Lieutenant Kenneth Gow, of the Machine Gun Company, 107th Infantry, 27th Division, to members of his family. This officer in many respects was typical of that finest type of young manhood which for many years constituted the brains and heart of the New York National Guard Division. Lieutenant Gow served the period of the Mexican Border Service as a private, corporal and Sergeant in the 7th New York Infantry. His letters cover many interesting features of that service.
