John J. Pershing, General of the Armies

By Frederick Palmer

Military Service Publishing Co., 1948, 380 pp.

Colonel Palmer first knew Pershing in 1904 and later served on his staff in the AEF during World War I, to which two-thirds of the book is devoted. The author strives for impartiality and his account deals with strategy rather than politics and personalities.
