Summary
A portrait of the distinguished American army commander documents his role in campaigns against the Moro in the Philippines and Francisco Villa in Mexico and his experiences in the Spanish-American War and World War I
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
This National Book Award finalist traces the life of the general whose career began on the western frontier and culminated with victory in a world war.

Using both domestic and foreign sources, many heretofore untapped, Frank Vandiver focuses on the qualities of and challenges to Pershing the soldier without losing sight of the man who wore the uniform. Vandiver gives special attention to Pershing's stint as head of the Bureau of Insular Affairs, his fourteen years' service in the Far East, and his unusual role as manager-organizer of the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I. Here is a full-bodied portrait of a remarkable American, plus new insights into American and international military history, and a fresh view of the United States' rise to power.
