Originally produced in 1917, Take Me to France is a pocket-sized French vocabulary book first made for US servicemen who were going off to war in Europe. A snappy guide to all of the essential words and phrases necessary for life in the trenches, this book is reproduced in facsimile format, including all of the original line drawings of different guns and equipment from wartime.
 
Flickering between silly and poignant, Take Me to France provides a distinct snapshot of the front line life of US soldiers that will charm any military history enthusiast.
