Abstract:

Few American military figures are more revered than General John J. ""Black Jack"" Pershing (1860--1948), who is most famous for leading the American Expeditionary Forces in World War I.

Though Pershing published a two-volume memoir, My Experiences in the World War, and has been the subject of numerous biographies, few know that he spent many years drafting a mem.
