General Pershing, who led all of the American troops in Europe during World War I, surmounted enormous obstacles to turn the U.S. army into a modern fighting force, but he was often perceived as a harsh, humorless, and wooden leader. My Fellow Soldiers draws on a trove of little-known and newly uncovered letters and diaries to create a vivid and moving account of the American experience in the war. As part of his “Million Letters Campaign,” Carroll will also discuss extraordinary stories and letters from other wars.
