PREFACE.

with the issue for 1915 The Daily News Al

manac and Year-Book has devoted a large amount of space annually to the progress of the world war. The events of each year in the conflict have been chronicled as fully and accurately as the facts available made possible. This is also true of the present issue, which, for the purpose of giving a comprehensive account of the historic occurrences of 1918, has been enlarged to 1,024 pages. The story of the war here presented goes back to 1914 and is not confined to the year which saw the conclusion of an armistice between the belligerents, though the dramatic developments in the last period of the conflict are treated more at length than are those relating to the earlier stages.

It has been the aim in this as in former issues to give in full the more important official documents, public utterances of statesmen, legislative acts and diplomatic proceedings relating to the war, as these will form the basis of future histories of the great upheaval which has already changed the territorial and political geography of the world. Among them, to mention only one, will be found President Wilson's speech setting forth the "fourteen points" which were accepted by most of the belligerents as the basis upon which to build a lasting peace. Attention may also be called to the fact that official reports by Secretary Baker, Gen. Pershing, Gen. March and Secretary Daniels describing the decisive part the American forces took in the war are reproduced in the pages of this volume.

Statistical and other information relating to local, state, national and international affairs is given with the same care and completeness as in previous issues.
