Review
Lacey's addition to the "Great Generals" series is an insightful and informative look at Gen. John J. Pershing, remembered today (if at all) as commander of the American Expeditionary Force during World War I. But Pershing's career spanned a longer period. Lacey (ed., The Canons of Jihad: Terrorists' Strategy for Defeating America ) recounts Pershing's development into the nation's first modern combat commander. After graduating from West Point in 1886, Pershing had an active career on the western frontier in the last Indian campaign, saw combat in Cuba during the Spanish-American War, and developed into a very effective midlevel commander in the Philippines, balancing negotiation and ruthlessness in dealing with the Moros. His single-minded devotion to duty aided him in his dealings with the Allies in World War I, maintaining the U.S. Army as a separate entity on the western front and providing the difference between defeat and victory. Lacey offers readers an insightful and informative look at a figure who should not have become all but forgotten. Recommended.—David Lee Poremba, Keiser Univ., Orlando, FL --David Lee Poremba (Reviewed May 1, 2008) (Library Journal, vol 133, issue 8, p74)
