The ninth page has roughly 1/3 of the page torn off. Further on 16 pp look as though they have been nibbled by mice on the front edges. On some of the pages, the nibbling has gotten into the text and on 1 page, a small part of a photo has been nibbled. The rest of the 697 pages are clean and readable. The 1st torn page (page 9) was the beginning of an explanation of what caused the war. There are listings of those killed and wounded and many photos. There are many short biographies of soldiers killed, when & where they died along with photographs.

Les Americains au Camp d'Auvours
6 Les Americains au Camp d'Auvours
Le Mans Chateaudun J. Bouveret Soft cover Good No Jacket Book 48mo - over 3 - 4" tall 
Unusual item: a booklet of postcards published in France during or shortly after World War I showing American troops encamped at Camp d'Avours. There are 17 postcards still in the booklet. I have no idea how many there were originally. This item has it problems. At some point it got wet so the covers are warped and stained and many of the postcards are stained as well & one has a skinned place on it. Still this lets us get a glimpse of the "Dough Boys" encamped
