WWI. 'Black Jack'. Frontal assaults even after the concept was under serious consideration for abandonment by veteran armies after the horrific losses of 1916.
John Joseph Pershing
Union general. Abandoned his troops to ride off to get re-inforcements. Ran slap bang into the reinforcement party. He stuttered "I was just coming to get you..." "General... you have found where are the enemy?"
His mother designed and made his uniforms... had a habit of walking through water, ankle deep... when the cameras were rolling...
Douglas MacArthur
Squeaky voiced, smallish, moneyed family, foul-mouthed, bully of shell-shocked soldiers.
George Smith Patton
Battle of Anzio. Tried to emulate one of the above. Had an army of photographers walking around him. Did not swear enough.
Mark Clark
Gettysburg. Pickett's Charge. Two thirds of the charge were A.P. Hill's men.
Robert E. Lee
Believed in a war of attrition, superior firepower and constant bombing raids against cities. Result - 58,000 dead US troops.
William Westmoreland
Horse riding officer. Brevet general during the civil war. 7th Cavalry. Sioux taught him a lesson in warfare he was not to forget. He should have stayed happy at home with Peggy.
