August of 1915 in Europe was a period of almost fevered belligerence, as we see in the clips below from the Wilmington Sunday Star. Italy broadens its list of enemies, huge naval battles rage in the Baltics, and German continues sinking ocean liners. Service records for Delaware soldiers Thomas J. Anderson, Michael Joseph Walch, and Donald Johnston MacKinnon are highlighted today.
