|"No food, no rest, no sleep, men wounded, dead, gas, machine guns, rockets, a continuous barrage,
shrapnel, the roar of thousands of cannon. There is no use- I cannot express it. At eleven o'clock the
cannons quit- gradually the machine guns and rifles ceased firing. All knew the war was over. Why or
how we did not know. The calm was too much- exhausted men fell where they were and broke."
-Lt. Howell Lindsay Smith, 117th Infantry, 30th Division.
