The Heroes Who Won the First World War and Made the American Century
Bestselling military historian H. W. Crocker III (The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Civil War, Robert E. Lee on Leadership, etc.) now turns his guns on the epic story of America’s involvement in the First World War with his new book Yanks.
Readers will learn how George S. Patton, Douglas MacArthur, George C. Marshall (of the Marshall Plan), "Wild Bill" Donovan (future founder of the OSS, the World War II precursor to the CIA), Harry S. Truman, and many other American heroes earned their military spurs in "The Great War".
Stirring, and full of brilliantly told stories of men at war, Yanks will be the essential book for readers interested in rediscovering America's role in the First World War.
