This is the first book ever devoted entirely to the St. Mihiel operation and its ramifications. It details Pershing's struggle to form an independent American army in France and the importance of the St. Mihiel operation from both political and military perspectives. It links historical events and details in a way that has never been done on this subject, pulling from a variety of sources to depict motivations, events, and political and military thought. It supports the conclusion―debated by historians and military men for over 75 years―that Pershing might have been able to end the war in September 1918, if not held back by the machinations of the Allies.

Hallas has covered one of the more controversial episodes in American military history—General Pershing's assault on the German position in the St. Mihiel Salient in September 1918. This is not an impersonal 'campaign history'; the personal experiences of U.S. troops are included. Recommended for World War I and military history collections. Library JournalAbout the Author:
JAMES H. HALLAS is publisher of the Glastonbury Citizen, a newspaper in Glastonbury, Connecticut. He has published articles in American History Illustrated and Yankee Magazine. His first book, Devil's Anvil: The Assault on Peleliu, was published by Praeger in 1994.
