An annotated bibliography of broadly selected materials relating to US Marines activities in World War I. This resource lists a number of personal accounts that will likely be of value to stories set in this era. Each annotation varies from a sentence to a paragraph. Introduction contains the following caveat:
In order that the list have the widest possible value to the largest number of researchers and writers, criteria for selection of items to be listed have been broad. Inclusion of any given title does not, therefore, necessarily constitute Marine Corps acceptance or endorsement of an author’s views, conclusions, or, indeed, complete historical accuracy. By the same token, the annotation supplied is in the nature of description of the contents of books and articles rather than a critical evaluation.
Most of the items on this list would be available through interlibrary loan, although it would be worthwhile to run the titles of books and articles through your favorite search engine. If the material is public domain, you may get a hit.
