Summary
"A graduate of West Point, Charles Pelot Summerall (1867-1955) launched a distinguished military career fighting Filipino insurgents in 1899 and Boxers in China in 1900. His remarkable service included brigade, division, and corps commands in World War I, where he received the highest honors awarded by the military, including the Distinguished Service Cross and the Silver Star. He served as chief of staff of the U.S. Army from 1926 to 1930 and then as president of the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, where he was instrumental in establishing the school's national reputation. In 1950 ... Summerall composed a detailed account of his personal and professional life on a yellow legal pad ... An opinionated man, Charles Pelot Summerall validates his actions and decisions, makes clear who his friends and perceived enemies were and explains why. [This book] is filled with his observations about a period of rapid transition for the U.S. Army, describing how the very nature of war changed irrevocably during his lifetime."--Jacket
