69 3158 - Clarence Richmond kept a diary during his time in the U.S. Marines during World War 1, and expanded it into a memoir that has been cited by at least two World War 1 web sites. It tells quite a remarkable story, and has several poignant passages The memoir, in full, is at http://www.robinrichmond.com/wardiary

The passage that is, to me, the most poignant and memorable is about the last night of World War 1, when the 5th Marines were asked to take the East bank of the Meuse river under very heavy fire from the Germans stationed on the hills above the river. (See http://www.robinrichmond.com/wardiary/diary20.htm ) He reveals the desperation and carnage of the night without hyperbole, and waxes eloquently on the controversy of requiring soldiers to engage in a difficult battle even after the cease-fire was evidently negotiated, but before it went into effect. He also noted dryly that, as he prepared for that battle, "for the millionth time, I agreed with Gen. Sherman about war".

That passage is especially memorable, because, in 2012, I went on a tour of World War 1 sites that featured the exploits of the U.S. Marines and that used my grandfather's memoir as source material. After we rode through farm fields searching for the Meuse River and the crossing site, I read that passage to the tour group. Then, the tour guide told me "When I planned this trip, I intended for someone to read that passage, but I had no idea whatsoever that it might be Clarence Richmond's grandson."
