Description of Pershing by John Perry
Considering the great generals in American history might evoke memory of Generals Patton, MacArthur, Lee, or Sherman. However, you may be less likely to recall General Pershing, a tough and courageous leader who is the only person to achieve the highest U.S. Army rank while still living. He mentored George Marshall, Dwight D. Eisenhower and George Patton. World War I and military history buffs will particularly enjoy this addition to The Generals Series. Everyone will gain deeper understanding of the critical strategic decisions Pershing made and won on the battlefield and how he influenced European and American history in both World Wars.
