Soldiers of the Great War[edit | edit source]

"Soldiers of the Great War" (3 Volumes) by Haulsee, Howe, and Doyle lists soldiers that died in WWI with their name, rank, town and cause of death. Photos of some of the soldiers are also included. The volumes are arranged by state with photographs of soldiers followed by a list of casualties. Not all casualties in the list have a photo and the photos are not listed in strict alphabetical order. You must browse through the photos one by one or use the index mentioned below to see if a listed casualty has a photo included in the book.

Note: Since the photographs are not strictly alphabetically arranged, an index to the photographs is available in volume three on page 497. The index does not give full names, instead it gives page numbers for each state in which to look for names that begin with a specific letter. First, find a name in the state sections of the volumes, and then, use the index to determine what pages to look for a photo. Not all casualties have photos.
