There Will Be Crosses

The Time: 1918

The Place: Somewhere in France

As an American Infantry Regiment prepares to "go over the top" nervous soldiers reflect on what must surely be their last day.  There Will Be Crosses is a fictional account of the men of American 14th Regiment of Color;  their hopes and fears, and above all, their desire to prove their valor is the  equal to that of any man.  Winner of the 1997 Dayton Daily News Short Story Contest, author Steve Pribish presents a vivid portrayal of trench warfare during the First World War.
