The goal of the author, the Director of the Office of War Records of the American Jewish Committee, is twofold. First, to explore and to explain the contributions of American Jews to the American war effort during World War I, and second, on a deeper level, to show that American Jewry "has contributed their full quota." As such, this article attempts to uncover how many Jews were in the American Armed Forces, the rankings of the Jewish Soldiers, the percentage of Jews in the Army vs. the Navy, and the percentage of Jews distributed among the combatant and non-combatant branches of the service. Then, the author answers the question, "How did these thousands of Jews in the American Forces measure up- as soldiers, as comrades, as men?" Finally, Leavitt explores whether or not Jewish soldiers were awarded military honors, and ends by writing about the number of Jewish casualties in the World War I effort.
