Summary:

Haunted by an ancestor's tale of near death on a distant battlefield,'James Carl Nelson'set out in pursuit of the scraps of memory of his grandfather's small infantry unit. Years of travel across the world led to the'retrieval of'unpublished personal papers,'obscure memoirs, and communications from numerous Doughboys'as well as'original interviews of'the'descendents of his grandfather's comrades in arms. The result is a compelling'tale of battle'rooted in new primary sources, and'one man's search for his grandfather's legacy in a horrifying maelstrom that is today poorly understood and nearly forgotten.

The Remains of Company D follows the members of Company D, 28th Infantry Regiment, United States First Division, from enlistment to'combat to the effort to recover their'remains, focusing on the three major battles at Cantigny, Soissons, and in the Meuse-Argonne and the effect these horrific battles'had on the men.

This is'an important and powerful'tale of the different destinies, personalities, and motivations of the men in Company D and a timeless portrayal of men at war.

'[Nelson] does an excellent job honoring the specific American experience in WWI'.A personal, moving journey that will be a welcome addition to any military-history shelf.''Kirkus Reviews
