S.L.A. Marshall

Brigadier General S.L.A. Marshall, in the words of Carl Sandburg, "rates among many of us as the greatest of writers on modern war." He enlisted in the army on June 11, 1917, a month before his seventeenth birthday, and fought in the Saint-Mihiel, Meuse-Argonne, and Ypres-Lys campaigns of World War I. Between World War I and II, he worked as a journalist and editor. He entered military service again after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and was named chief historian of the European Theater. During the Korean War, he served as an operations analyst for the U.S. Eighth Army. General Marshall's other books include Blitzkrieg, Pork Chop Hill, and The River and the Gauntlet.
