Details

John Joseph "Black Jack" Pershing (1860-1948) took command of the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) on the Western Front in 1917. Two years later, Congress elevated him to the rank of “General of the Armies of the United States,” one of only two Americans (along with George Washington) to achieve that distinction. On 10 May, Andrew Carroll, Director of the Center for American War Letters at Chapman University and a New York Times bestselling author, discusses his new book, "My Fellow Soldiers: General John Pershing and the Americans Who Helped Win the Great War"; and the new PBS film "The Great War." Mr. Carroll is especially hoping that veterans and/or their families will bring wartime letters and emails to contribute to the Center for American War Letters (www.WarLetters.us). Book signing follows program. FREE and open to the public
