Can you imagine the feelings and thoughts of one who had been under almost continuous shell fire for the last six weeks, when he heard that it was all over, no more shells, whiz-bangs, machine gun bullets humming overhead, etc.? Man, it sure was a great and glorious sensation to have the feeling of security and safety again. While we were at the front we never knew but what that particular moment might be our last.

Mark McCave's diary, which has been described as an eloquent, honest recollection of war, has been in his family for years. Soon, it will be shared with the world.
