 Ludwig Bemelmans, Corporal, United States Army
Bemelmans's first book for adults, My War with the United States, was actually his translation of the diary he had kept during his World War I service.
Ludwig Bemelmans came to the United States in 1914, supposedly after he had shot and nearly killed a fellow employee of his uncle's hotel in his native Austria, bearing two pistols (presumably one of them being that with which he did the dastardly deed) to fight off hostile Indians.
As most of his books did, it struck critics as fresh, witty, and irreverent, although it was not without intimations of cruelty and madness (notably in the scenes touching on the horrors of military hospitals).
