PERSHING by Jim Lacey (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below). “Lacey’s contribution to the Great Generals series substantially redresses the balance in Pershing’s favor by focusing on his acheivements.” (Booklist) When the U.S. entered into WWI in 1917, they did so with inadequate forces. In just over a year, Pershing built a one million man army that turned the tide of the war. Lacey traces Pershing’s development from Indian fighter to guerrilla warrior in the Philippines to victorious commander in WWI.

When the U.S. entered into World War I in 1917, they did so with inadequate forces. In just over a year, Pershing built and hurled a one-million-man army against forty 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 WWI commander.
