What I Saw Of The War: Notes of my Trip through England and France in 1918
In 1918, John Atwood, a Kansas City lawyer, was sent to England and France by Missouri Senator James A. Reed to get a first hand report of the effectiveness of airplanes in warfare and then make a report to the U.S. Congress. After he returned, he wrote this book to distribute to his family and friends so they could have a better understanding of what he saw from September 1, 1918 until November 10, 1918. Now, for the first time, the book has been reprinted so that the general public can read it. It contains vivid descriptions of his voyage to England and finally his observations of actual aerial battles in France. It gives an amazing glimpse of what life was like in England and France during the final days of World War I.
