    Red Star Diary of 1916 was found by Rena Corey in a flea market in 1993 but the story didn't stop there It was a bit of luck that its buyer specialized in antiuarian documents and took a shine to Bill Noxon's story using the few clues it contained to track down its author Her discovery of Bill Noxon's life apart from his diary adds to his teenage reflections to create a complete picture and involving account of his life and changing worldUnlike most histories of World War I Red Star Diary of 1916 doesn't come from a journalist a military fighter their family or anyone associated with media politics or society It's from a comparative outsider who evolves from his concerns of daily living and his move from city to the country to take in the wider evolving worldJust as Bill stands at the threshold of change so does the world; and as he begins to embrace the idea of this wider world so readers follow the evolution of World War I events and impact with a far greater personal perspective than most accounts of the times can offerIf you've read a lot of World War I history you know that it's a fairly singular subject Most approaches concentrate on historical events and don't capture daily life in a diary format; and most come from adults not from teen observers And Red Star Diary of 1916's maker was deceased so Rena Corey's first task was to recreate his words and life as he would have creating a factual textual documentary and avoiding the usual tendency to produce chapters in favor of the personal approach of the diary's original format uotes from Bill's diary are thus interspersed with Corey's words to round out and tell the entire story and her additions appear in italics to clearly differentiate her voice from his unedited reflectionsAdd a wealth of period illustrations photos handbills postcards maps advertising and and you have a uniue presentation powered by the unusual collaborative efforts of a young boy's words and an antiuarian document enthusiast's attention to recreating vivid history from a single youth's diaryVivid immediate and personal very few other stories of World War I hold the intimacy and perspective of Red Star Diary of 1916 making it a standout recommendation not only for readers of the subject but those interested in the process of re creating history from original writings and antiuarian works
