The wartime experience of the Canadian Expeditionary Force is the subject of an essay by Desmond Morton, while Charles R. Shrader analyzes the history of U.S. troops integrated into the British logistical system. T. H. E. Travers offers critical comment.

Edward M. Coffman discusses the pre-war training of the U.S. Officer Corps, and Paolo E. Coletta closes the volume with an essay on the U.S. Navy during the period of American neutrality. Joseph G. Dawson comments on these papers.
