The War to End All Warsby Edward M. Coffman, Walter Zimmerman
In addition to describing major battles and personalities--including junior officers such as Douglas MacArthur, George Marshall and George S.
Too often, military histories are limited to descriptions and analyses of battles, from the perspective of opposing commanders. In this study, Edward Coffman places WW I within the context of the entire American war effort.
In addition to describing major battles and personalities--including junior officers such as Douglas MacArthur, George Marshall and George S. Patton, Jr. --Coffman presents the perspective of the common soldier.
Topics often missing from histories of WW I are examined: operation of the draft, training of officers, performance of black troops, treatment of conscientious objectors and formation of the air force.
"Considered by many to be the best single account of the American participation in WW I." (Publisher's Source)
