Nearly one hundred years later, his granddaughter, Susan C. McGrath, transcribed and annotated Ball's diary, adding historical relevancy and poignant perspective to Ball's firsthand account of "The War to End All Wars." The diary is further enhanced by interwoven stories penned by Ball's son, Donald Herringshaw Ball, which chronicle Ball's life after the war, sharing an intimate and heartfelt view of Ball and his family.
More than simply a war diary, The Long Sadness is a moving testament to the redemptive powers of love, faith, and family.
