“We are always ready but in the meantime its dig, and work, and being careful, and trust to chance at times” -- Carl Farnsworth, July 18th, 1918.
This book contains the legacy of First Class Private Carl W. Farnsworth. Experience World War One through the words of a combat engineer: one of the many and sadly forgotten men who helped pave the way for the rest of America to enter the Great War. This is a story about a simple man from Nebraska, as he travels halfway around the world. Encountering the sights of war and meeting those that were left behind in the rubble. And yet through it all, he could still see the beauty of the world that was around him.
