John M. Longley was a farm boy from rural Maine who went to France as a teenager to fight in The Great War. Somehow he survived that hell and returned to Maine, but it was only after his wife died that he opened up at some length to his grandson, Mark D. LeBlanc, about his time in the war. "From Maine to France and Somehow Back Again" is a well-researched book highlights the two years that Longley spent with the 103rd Infantry of the 26th Yankee Division. The book is a lively, evocative account of one man's fight to survive.
