UNCLE SAM'S ARMY BOYS in ITALY by Burley 1919
UNCLE SAM'S ARMY BOYS IN ITALY or BOB HAMILTON UNDER FIRE IN THE PIAVE DISTRICT. By Major Andrew S. Burley, M. A. Donahue & Co., Chicago, 1919.
Juvenile - Classic Fiction
The second book in the Uncle Sam's Army Boys series.
Robert Lee "Bob" Hamilton is a descendant of Robert E. Lee. Bob and his pal Sid join the Virginia State Militia and fight in several spots during and after WWI. A typical wartime boys' series, the books are full of patriotism and ideals of "Southern manliness and honor." While Bob exhibits these qualities in spades, there is something mildly endearing about a military series in which the hero is so reluctant to actually fight.
Very nice condition with a solid binding, clean pages and light cover wear. 7-1/2 x 5 with 253 pages.
