"Private Edward Smith was in the third wave of American infantry to go “over the top” into “No-Man’s Land” between the Allied and German lines. As the rolling artillery barrage began, the sounds were deafening, but Edward kept his cool. He fought valiantly, killing several German soldiers when he was part of a detachment that overran a German machine gun emplacement that had been decimating the advancing Allied force."
