Abstract:

An account of how America's military leaders moved to adapt existing organizations, tactics, and procedures to meet the demands of emerging situations in World War I. Discusses the Army's rapid transformation from its traditional mix of regulars and locally raised militia into a mass army of millions while learning the techniques of modern warfare. In particular, the author credits the American Expeditionary Forces with having made a conscious commitment not only to learn all it could from the experiences of its allies and enemies but also to identify and systematically correct problems, thus ensuring its growing effectiveness and ultimate success on the battlefield. This study highlights just how important to success is the Army's ability to change. It offers profound lessons for those currently grappling with change throughout the Army and those seeking answers from recent operations.
