  • A FAMILIAR NIGHT SCENE TO THE ONES WHO WERE OVER THERE Just like a Fourth of July celebration. Star shells bursting to signal the artillery, flares to light up No-Man's Land, and the boom, boom of cannon, which sounded like huge fire crackers. Slow, but sure, we moved on through the Argonne. From Tar-Heel War Record (In the Great World War).


  • GOING OVER FIRST SIGHT OF FRANCE Panoramic view of a bit of the ground the boys covered From Tar-Heel War Record (In the Great World War).


  • Search Lights at work in the Argonne, trying to locate the enemy plane. From Tar-Heel War Record (In the Great World War).


  • TANKS IN THE MEUSE-ARGONNE Those rumbling little tanks go wabbling over the shell-torn grounds up to a stone house. You hear a crack, see a puff of smoke, and the stone house begins to crumble. A few more shots, and a few more Huns rush out with hands over their heads, and you can almost hear them yell "Kamerad." The house is down, prisoners captured and the little tanks wabble to the next victim. From Tar-Heel War Record (In the Great World War).
