The First World War began in August, 1914, but America didn't have a functional army in Europe until the fall of 1917. During those three years (1914-1917), more than 3,000 Americans, paying their own passage, sailed to France to help in the war effort. The majority were young men who drove Ford Model T ambulances for what would become the American Field Service. Field Service ambulance sections were assigned to the French Army and saw their greatest glory in the battle of Verdun (1916). "Model T's to War" is their story.
