Four days before the end of the Great War Sergeant Chester Schulz was killed, but his family wouldn't learn his fate until four long months later. Told through a series of letters from home and overseas, this is one family's story of tragedy and loss. This book details life experienced by many of the Doughboys and their families during 1917 and 1918. Through their correspondence and the author's research of the event, WW 1 comes to life on a personal level. Chester's footsteps are followed through present day France as the author traces her Great-Uncle's last days. Chester's Mother, Gertrude Schulz, was instrumental in forming the National War Mothers Organization. Their first convention was held in Evansville, Indiana with Gertrude Schulz presiding as the first acting National President. A small history of this organization is included. This edition is in Black and White. The book is also available in a color version for scans, maps, letters and photos
