Another entry in the outstanding Modern War Studies series of the University Press of Kansas, this book offers a shrewd and judicious assessment of American strategy and operations in World War I. In company with other recent historians, Trask gives low marks to General John Pershing, commander of the American Expeditionary Force, and considerably higher grades to President Woodrow Wilson. More than a mere historical monograph, this is a concise but thoughtful assessment of America's first modern coalition war.
