Reviews

"Selecting excerpts from thousands of letters to highlight the human perception of the war, Carroll embeds these recollections in a clear, chronological war narrative that takes the reader from the beginning of the war in 1914 through President Wilson's decision to enter the war in 1917 and the U.S. military's combat experience for the remainder of the conflict. Carroll uses the personal correspondence of Gen. Pershing, the U.S. commander in France, as a means of establishing the war timeline. Varied American perspectives of the war are included, and the letters of African-Americans and women figure prominently in the work...Carroll has produced an engaging and informative introduction to a war that has been largely relegated to the shadows by the subsequent global conflagration." --Publishers Weekly "Illuminating first-hand letters and diaries, including some newly discovered, enable the author to credibly deliver another historical non-fiction masterpiece....The many stirring first-person accounts of soldiers, aviators, and volunteer American nurses combine to make this superbly crafted history highly recommended."--Historical Novel Society "A fascinating and timely history.... An accessible account of the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I and its commander, General John Pershing."--Shelf Awareness "The title of My Fellow Soldiers comes from a general order Pershing issued to thank his troops before returning home. Like Pershing's note, it is a fitting tribute to the more than two million Americans who stepped forward a century ago to rescue the Allies and bring the United States onto the world's stage." --Weekly Standard
