Patrick Gregory will be signing copies at IWM London of An American on the Western Front.
The book, co-written with Elizabeth Nurser, charts the story of Arthur Clifford Kimber who was one of the first Americans on the front line after the entry of the US into the war, where he served as a volunteer ambulancier. Kimber then trained as a fighter pilot flying with both French & US Air Services. His letters home give a vivid picture of what Kimber witnessed on his journey from Palo Alto, California to the front in France: keen-eyed descriptions of America as it prepared for the forthcoming conflict, the privations of wartime Britain and France, and an encounter with former president Theodore Roosevelt.
