BUCK  ADAMS: A MARINE IN THE GREAT WAR

By

Wayne A. Pettyjohn

     An historical novel based on the unit history of the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment in World War I. Buck Adams, a young farm boy from Michigan, enlists in the Marines in June 1917. After Paris Island and Quantico, he sails to France, fights at Belleau Wood, Soissons, St Mihiel, Blanc Mont, and in the Argonne. After the war he serves on occupation duty in Germany before returning home in 1919.

 

Reviewer’s remarks: “If you read novels you will like this one. It is the story, told in a serious mode, about a young farm lad that follows his desire to make something of himself. There are numerous other individuals, all of whom are well described, that come into the story, making it more than just one man’s experiences. The illustrations are truly superb, well-drawn and the maps are better than you will find in many nonfiction works.”

George Clark, New Hampshire


Soft cover, 7x8.5 format, 16 illustrations, 9 maps, 241 pages. Price of $20 includes shipping within U.S.

SLUM AND GUNS: TALES OF MARINES IN THE GREAT WAR

By

Wayne A. Pettyjohn

    

     Thirty-two short stories about Buck Adams and his fellow

Marines in the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment during World

War 1. Many of the same characters found in “Buck Adams; A

Marine in the Great War.”

 

Reviewer’s remarks: “I liked Slum and Guns because to my mind

it is accurately written ‘from the ranks’ and because the facts

are right. I can find myself in company with the lads and can

empathize with them, since they seem to me to be real people.”

Tony Noyes, London, England

Soft cover, 7x8.5 format, 16 illustrations, 6 maps, 213 pages.

Price of $20 includes shipping within U.S.

 WWI Artifacts Donations -



If you have ANY old WWI Items stored in boxes and in trunks...in the attic or basement, these items could be at risk for mold and premature deterioration due to heat and humidity. The goal of the WWI Preservation Collection is to gather up long forgotten military items from the WWI time period  and protect them from being lost forever.

There are many Items in danger of being lost to improper storage. Many family members do not want to care for or store the old medals, uniforms, phonograph records, rifles, trunks, documents and photographs.......

THE WWI PRESERVATION COLLECTION WILL TAKE THESE ITEMS !!!!!!!!

Believe it or not ....these items often end up in garbage bins to be hauled off to the dump and lost forever.

Upon receiving any items I will carefully evaluate the condition and photograph the items. (Some may even appear on the photos page for everyone to see) The items will then be tagged and properly preserved in storage or on display at a museum on loan.


WWI Preservation Collection -

"Is dedicated to the memory of those who fought in the muddy trenches of France during WWI.

To  preserve their Weapons; Uniforms; Documents and Equipment so that their story

may be told to future generations."
