Printing Details

Squad is a war chronicle of an American eight man squad at the Front during the First World War, and the adventures they have. It is based loosely on the author's experiences with the 11th Infantry Regiment, 28th Division. This novel is highly regarded for the detail it provides on the American infantry during the Great War.

The publishers, Coward McCann, were founded in 1928, so this is one of their earliest titles.


This copy is in good condition for age. There are two very small holes to the front joint and a faint ring mark to the rear board. There is watermark to the margins for the first 50 pages or so, though this does not affect text. The book remains in strong readable condition.
