In World War I, commanded the American Expeditionary Force in Europe, helping bring an end to the war. He quietly retired after the war and was buried with honors at Arlington National Cemetery.
The 100 plus photographs, many of which have not appeared in a book before, show the handsome, erect, determined figure of "Black Jack" Pershing. The text of this book based on papers in the Library of Congress and material from acquaintances.
This book is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears. There is wear on the book cover and signed by the previous owner.
