Of the Night Wind's Telling is heartily recommended as a
valuable addition to the library of anyone interested in the
history, customs, and legendary lore of our neighbor south of
the Rio Grande.

The Ohio War History Commission has collaborated with
Major Harry P. Snyder to publish the story of the 174th Field
Artillery Battalion. The coat of arms, the motto, and the in-
signia of the battalion in color form the frontispiece. The motto,
possumus et volumus, is answered in the cover-title of the small
volume which is We Did.
The author says that in preparing the publication an effort
has been made to carry along the main thread of action and
circumstances; that necessarily much has been omitted but those
incidents and events which are believed of the greatest interest
to the whole group are described in detail.
Many excellent maps illustrate the campaigns engaged in.
Pictures of places of interest and many pertinent cartoons
scattered throughout add much to the story.
An appendix lists the awards of Purple Hearts, Bronze Star
Medals, Air Medals, and Croix de Guerre. Also there is the
embarkation roster with home addresses.
It is interesting that forty-one Texans were in this battalion.
That their names may be preserved in the archives of Texas,
they are appended below:
