Pershing Publisher's Summary

In this persuasive biography, Jim Lacey sheds light on General Pershing's legacy as the nation's first modern combat commander, setting the standard for today's four-star officers.

When the U.S. entered into World War I in 1917, it did so with inadequate forces. In just over a year, Pershing built and hurled a one-million-man army against 40 battle-hardened German divisions, defending the hellish Meuse-Argonne and turning the tide of the war.

With focus and clarity, Lacey traces Pershing's development from Indian fighter to guerrilla warrior against the Philippines insurgency to victorious commander in a world war.
