My Book the "History of 318 Field Hospital", 442 pages, is available online. With the help of many, you will read the real life first hand account of the soldiers who went to war in France during 1918-1919. Check my virtual cemetery on the 318th.
I could still use some assistance finding the remaining seven unit members (listed below). So far I have found 85 soldiers - see my virtual cemetery:
