HE purpose of this work is to present a record, complete and accurate, of the American soldiers who lost their lives in Europe in the World War.
Before the Armistice was signed, which ended hostilities, the writer, then in training camp, was impressed with the importance and value of such a record as would permanently embody the sacrifices of the men who gave all for the cause of freedom on the battlefields of France and other fronts of the great conflict.  The plan of the work was outlined and details for assembling the photographs and collecting other data for these volumes were worked out.  The plan was made known to Mr. F. G. Howe, then engaged in war work in Washington, and to Mr. A. C. Doyle, who was in training camp.  An association was formed to assemble the data, compile and publish the work.  Mr. Howe immediately began to collecting of materials and was later joined by Mr. Doyle.  To them is due in large measure the success of launching the undertaking.
          We soon learned that it would be impossible to obtain the photographs of all the soldiers who died in the great war.  Many left no photographs, the relatives of many others were reluctant to part with the picture they had, and in some cases conditions were met most unfavorable to the enterprise, but with an abiding faith in the value of this record to the relatives and friends of the departed soldiers, and to the public as a historical record, the association continued its labors with an increasing degree of success.  The collection of materials continued for a period of over one year, during which time they were made ready for publication.
          In all cases the best photograph available, in many instances and of the world.  We cannot add luster to their memory.  We have only sought to keep bright in this permanent form the memory of their noble sacrifice.  It is our earnest desire that these volumes shall be a constant reminder of the precious price paid by brave men in a national crisis for liberty.  May the citizenship of this Republic be inspired with as lofty ideals in the perpetuation of American institutions as were these men in defending them!
