ISBN: 0712606947. 308pp/maps. This volume gives a full account of the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-20, when the Red Army was crushed by a devasting Polish attack. The author draws on documentary material and shows how this episode largely determined the course of European history for the next 20 years. A neglected event in history, the Polish-Soviet War of 1919-20 was not the final episode in the wars of intervention, but an independent enterprise on the Polish side with minimal support from the Entente Powers. In many English history books, it appears under the erroneous title of the 'Russo-Polish War', and is treated as just one spot in the rash of border conflicts which broke out all over Europe at this time. As far as Soviet history is concerned, the war with Poland represents the first occasion when the Red Army set out to revolutionise the whole of Europe - for the Poles, it was an occasion when they finally justified their claim to independent statehood.

The European Allies wished to plug the much-needed U.S. troops into their armies in order to fill the gaps in the line. But General John J. "Black Jack" Pershing, the indomitable commander of the AEF, determined that its troops would fight together, as a whole, in a truly American Army. Only this force, he argued--not bolstered French or British units--could convince German that it was hopeless to carry on. Pershing's often-criticized decision led to the beginning of the end of World War I--and the beginning of the U.S. Army as it is known today. There United States started the war with 200, 000 troops, including the National Guard as well as regulars. They were men principally trained to fight Indians and Mexicans. Just nineteen months later the Army had mobilized, trained, and equipped 4, 000, 000 men and sent 2, 000, 000 of them to France. It was the greatest mobilization of military forces the New World had yet seen. Nice clean copy $27.50

Covering the Gilded Age and Progressive Era through the Spanish-American War and World War I, Mobilizing for Modern War shows how a partnership evolved between government and business to prepare for and conduct modern warfare.

Stated 1st printing. Mr. Blumenson has woven them into a stirring narrative which speaks with unparalleled clarity and force. Here, then, for the first time, is the opportunity to see Patton in all his aspects, as legend, soldier, and man. This book carries Patton's story to 1940. It shows the formation of the soldier and how'ie prepared himself for the unique leadership he exercised in World War II. Here is the youthful Patton, conscious of his heritage as a member of a military family and totally absorbed in the fulfillment of his destiny. One sees too the nature of Army life in those days, by turns exciting and monotonous, as the young Patton was shunted from one military post to another, during what he considered onerous years of peace. With his service under General Pershing in the Punitive Expedition in Mexico, and later in the tumultuous years of World War I, Patton finally found opportunities for military life as he wished it to be. Mr. Blumenson shows how Patton met the challenges of the Mexican campaign and how, during the World War, he switched from cavalry to tanks, organized and led the Tank Corps, and began to build for himself what was to become the Patton legend. In the two decades after the war, the Army passed through lean years, as appropriations .were cut to a minimum. Patton returned to the cavalry - but not to obscurity, for as Mr. Blumenson shows, he was often at the center of an ongoing controversy between supporters of a mechanized army and defenders of traditional cavalry units. Patton's positions in this debate, always forceful but often full of reservations, appear here in startling relief, and they amply suggest the complexities of the later hero of World War II.

They came from all walks of life, counting humble privates and, for the first time, a general among their ranks. They won their awards, often in conditions that beggar belief, as a campaign of grand strategic ambition became bogged down in the Flanders mud. Of those 61 VCs, 15 were posthumous awards.

As New / As New. ISBN: 1560989432. 186pp. "Mason Patrick began his military aviation career in 1918 when Gen. John J. Pershing selected him to command the Air Service of the American Expeditionary Force at a critical juncture in World War I. Patrick, one of Pershing's former West Point classmates and an engineer by training, did not earn his wings until 1923, but by virtue of his intellect, political acumen, and organizational skills, he transformed the Air Service and set it on the path to independence from the U.S. Army. In this assessment of Patrick's aviation career, Robert P. White credits Patrick, not his more vocal second-in-command, Billy Mitchell, with ensuring the survival of the Air Service at a time when it faced critical internal and external pressures. While Mitchell played the role of the attention-grabbing publicist, Patrick skillfully functioned as the true leader of the Air Service, expertly maneuvering behind the scenes and in selected public forums to ultimately ensure the creation of the Air Corps.
