An American on the Western Front
As a reader of The American we know you’re interested in the United States of America and its rich history.
An American on the Western Front combines the moving personal history of student Arthur ‘Clifford’ Kimber with the wider story of the US involvement in WW1. It is a must-read for all those who care about the USA on the world stage now, in the past and in the future.
They trace Kimber’s journey from springtime California in 1917 to the front in France and follow his progress over the next 18 months as he served first as an ambulance driver and then as a fighter pilot, flying with both the French and U.S. Air Services – before being killed in action weeks from its end.
