Aprašymas

The first book chronicling the dramatic events that created the American army that was victorious in World War II. Legendary leaders like Eisenhower, Patton, Bradley, Clark, and others emerged in the enormous mock battles in Tennessee, Louisiana, the Carolinas, and later the California desert. The story reveals the enormous tension in the country between isolationists like Charles Lindbergh and Senator Burton Wheeler of Montana and those who knew the U.S. would have to enter the war, such as George C. Marshall and FDR. The draft of 1940, extended by one vote in the House in 1941, is an especially dramatic scene; if one vote had shifted sides, the American army would have been in chaos when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.Reveals the previously untold connection between the New Deal's Civilian Conservation Corps and the rebuilding of the army. Follows participants of the maneuvers onto battlefields in Europe, West Africa, and the Far East. A major theme running through the book is that of the tension over segregation in the armed forces between those who maintained it and those increasingly pushing to abolish it.Paul Dickson is the author of more than sixty books on topics ranging from language and slang to serious nonfiction on the twentieth century, including books on Sputnik and the "Bonus Army" of World War I veterans.
