On September 26, 1918 the American Expeditionary Force (A.E.F.) initiated an attack on German lines in France that would turn into the most prolonged battle in U.S. history. The Meuse-Argonne Operation lasted 47 days and involved over 1.2 million troops. So conviniced the offensive would bring about a German defeat, General John J. Pershing, Commander of the A.E.F. commented that his troops would meet their final destiny by Christmas--
Heaven, Hell, or Hoboken. Indeed, he was right. The Meuse-Argonne Operation ended with the signing of the Armistice on November 11.

Eighty years ago, over 3 million American men were inducted into service to fight in the Great War. Private Clair M. Pfennig, a native of Bristol, Connecticut, was one of those men. Based upon Private Pfennig's personal, battlefield diary and published letters home, All for Heaven, Hell, or Hoboken provides an intimate portrait of World War I from the perspective of a typical American soldier. Generously augmented with explanatory passages, photographs, and maps, All for Heaven, Hell, or Hoboken also serves as an interesting source of information about a war that today seems to have passed from America's collective memory.

Professional Reviews

Nancy Gilber, U.S. Army Military Institute
"Without question, Finan's publication is a welcome addition to our World War I holdings and certainly will enhance our ability to better serve the military history community"

Mike Hanlon, Director, The Great War Society
"It is very impressive. The publishing is very high quality. Finan did a super job finding supplementary information and photos to fill out the story. I must say, having read hundreds of memoirs, diaries, and letter collections of the doughboys, that Finan took a very raw original document a long, long way"

Art Silverblatt, Webster University
"This book offers extraordinary insight into World War I, based upon the diary of an enlisted man . . . An impressive work of historical importance"
