J. Andre Smith (1880-1959) was an official war artist for the United States Army during World War I. His description of his drawings in the Foreword: "War posed for me in the attitude of a very deliberate worker who goes about his task of fighting in a methodical and thorough manner. If the picture of war which the sum total of my drawings show has any virtue of truth or novelty it is in this respect: It shows War, the business man, instead of War, the warrior."
