About this title

Synopsis:

Orlando Ward received his first assignment out of West Point in 1914 as a lieutenant in command of U.S. Cavalry troops patrolling the Mexican border. During an illustrious forty-year career he pursued Pancho Villa, led American combat troops in two World Wars, and commanded occupation forces in an uneasy peace on the Korean Peninsula. Gugeler's insights reveal General Ward both as a major American military figure and a man anchored by an unshakeable core of moral strength. Through eyewitness accounts, diary entries and family history, Gugeler tells the story of a man ruled by an unerring sense of duty--to his loved ones, his men and his country.

About the Author:

Russell Gugeler enlisted in the Army Air Corps during World War II and trained as a glider pilot. When the glider program was terminated, he was selected for Officer Candidate School, earned his commission, and served in the Artillery in the Pacific. With his love for writing, he later transferred to the Office of the Chief of Military History, in which he served with General Orlando Ward, and co-authored Okinawa: The Last Battle. With the outbreak of the Korean War, Gugeler explored the front lines, becoming wounded in the process, gathering material for Combat Actions In Korea, perhaps his best-known book. Serving as the command historian at a number of overseas locations, he retired from active duty with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. The original manuscript was completed shortly before his death in 1985. The biography of General Ward, whom he greatly admired, is Gugeler's last major work.
