Great content printed document: 'Report on Operations of the Technical and Administrative Services Eighty-First Division in St. Die and Meuse-Argonne Offensive', 22pp. folio, published at the request of the Chief of Staff one year after the attack, and owned by the commander of the 306th Engineers Regiment, 81st Division, Thatcher T. P. Luquer. The interior report details the horrendous medical conditions and outbreaks of influenza, yet details the heroic action of the medical workers, reads in part: '[the division's] most formidable foe, influenza...was raging in all the Armies in Europe...men in the trenches were crowded in dugouts...damp, cold, weather and the impossibility of getting always, sufficient hot food...sufficient animal drawn ambulances were attached to each Ambulance Company...The bravery of these wagoners and Ambulance Orderlies in evacuating the wounded...under continuous shell and machine gun fire will live in the memory of those who witnessed their untiring labor...' The report also evaluates the Engineers Department, Signal Service, Quartermaster Department, Veterinary Department, Ordinance Department, Munitions Department, Train Headquarters, Military Police, and more, many of which bear great military content. Luquer adds his name on the front cover. As commander of the 306th Engineers Regiment, 81st Division, Luquer's regiment served at the front during the offensive towards war's end. Fine to very fine condition.
