The Worse for It website (theworseforit.com) will serve as a companion to the book: The Worse for It: The World War I Letters and Artifacts of Private First Class Robert E. Schalles. It will supplement and expand on the content in the book. For example, all the letters will be here and searchable. Students will also be able to see large-sized, color images of the letters, artifacts, documents and photographs.
In some cases where only portions of a document or booklet are shown in the book, the full document or booklet will be available on the website.
The website will also serve as a way to dispense more information about the people my grandfather knew, battles he was involved in and places he was stationed at during his time in the Army (1917 – 1919).
This is the initial version of the website. In the next phase I’ll be adding all the letters that will be in the book.
Hope you enjoy!
