octavo, (xviii), 254 pp. From the dust jacket, "The tale of the American volunteer ambulance drivers of the First World War is one of gallantry amid gore, stirring example of wartime courage has been recounted only in fragments. Arlen J. Hansen's "Gentlemen Volunteers" brings to life the entire story of the men - and women - who formed the first ambulance corps, and who went on to redefine American Culture. Some were to become legends - Ernest Hemingway, E. E. Cummings, John Dos Passos, Malcolm Cowley, Walt Disney, Dashiell Hammett - but all were part of a generation seeking something greater and grander than what they could find at home." Illustrated. Very fine. Bookseller Inventory # 21717
