Edward Morlae, A Soldier of the Legion, (Boston & NY: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1916).
Note: Morlae's account of the French Foreign Legion and specifically the battle of Champagne, September 1915, first appeared in the Atlantic Monthly, prior to its publication in this book. It must be noted that upon reading Morlae's account, the American volunteers immediately protested its accuracy and questioned Morlae's credibility. As a group, the volunteers sent letters of complaint to Ellery Sedgwick of the Atlantic Monthly and to the New York Times. Charles Louis Seeger, the father of Alan Seeger, also wrote a complaint to the New York Times, and his letter was published in that newspaper. Morlae, who portrays himself as a hero in the battle of Champagne and a leader among the American volunteers, was accused of desertion. -- Rich McErlean
