About this title


Winner of the 1971 Allan Nevins prize for sound scholarship and literary excellence, this distinguished biography redeems from neglect a gifted and lively figure in post-Civil War American history. Henry Tureman Allen's life spanned a period in which the United States was transformed from a nation still struggling along an Indian frontier into a world power with great international responsibilities. During that period Allen was a part of nearly every major move in which the United States Army was involved. He was actively engaged in the Spanish-American War (and for a week he even served as "mayor" of the Cuban town of El Caney), in putting down the Philippine insurrection, in the 1916 invasion of Mexico, and in World War I. Many of Allen's assignments, which were more diverse than those of any of his army-officer contemporaries, were in the ill-defined area of civil military relations, where he frequently had to make up his own rules - a practice by no means unsuited to his temperament. His first major assignment was a twenty-five-hundred-mile exploration and mapping of the Copper River in the scarcely explored wilderness that Alaska then was. Later, he spent most of the last decade of the century as a military attaché abroad, first in St. Petersburg and then in Berlin.
