Summary
"In Pershing's Tankers, Lawrence M. Kaplan compiles 47 official personal experience reports, 27 unofficial accounts, and six letters written by George Patton to his family to provide insight into the human dimension of US tank operations in World War I. These narratives vary in size, scope and depth, and cover a range of topics, including the organizing, training, combat operations, and equipping of the Tank Corps. Kaplan offers accounts from a broad cross-section of men from senior leaders down to the platoon level"--
