Grace under fire : letters of faith in times of war by Andrew Carroll( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A moving record of the importance of spirituality to troops and their families, from the American Revolution through the fighting in Iraq. Reflecting the writers' thoughts, feelings, and questions about matters of faith, these letters offer a window on how individuals have endured the trials of separation, the fear of battle, the agony of loss, and the stresses of homecoming. There are riveting accounts of battles, anecdotes describing lighter moments shared with comrades, touching inquiries about sweethearts and families, as well as more somber and philosophical musings about life and death. Each is introduced with a note explaining who wrote it, the circumstances under which it was written, and, if known, the fate of the writer. Although these letters and e-mails were all written in times of war, they transcend the subject of armed conflict--anyone going through a difficult moment will find inspiration and courage in these words.--From publisher description
My fellow soldiers : General John Pershing and the Americans who helped win the Great War by Andrew Carroll( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Draws on a rich trove of both little-known and newly uncovered letters and diaries to create a marvelously vivid and moving account of the American experience in World War I, with General John Pershing featured prominently in the foreground. Andrew Carroll's intimate portrait of General Pershing, who led all of the American troops in Europe during World War I, is a revelation. Given a military force that, on the eve of its entry into the war, was downright primitive compared with the European combatants, the general had to surmount enormous obstacles to build an army and ultimately command millions of U.S. soldiers. But Pershing himself--often perceived as a harsh, humorless, and wooden leader--concealed inner agony from those around him: almost two years before the United States entered the war, Pershing suffered a personal tragedy so catastrophic that he almost went insane with grief and remained haunted by the loss for the rest of his life, as private and previously unpublished letters he wrote to family members now reveal. Before leaving for Europe, Pershing also had a passionate romance with George Patton's sister, Anne. But once he was in France, Pershing fell madly in love with a young painter named Micheline Resco, whom he later married in secret. Woven throughout Pershing's story are the experiences of a remarkable group of American men and women, both the famous and the unheralded, including Harry Truman, Douglas MacArthur, William "Wild Bill" Donovan, Teddy Roosevelt, and his youngest son, Quentin. The chorus of these voices, which begins with the first Americans who enlisted in the French Foreign Legion as well as those who flew with the Lafayette Escadrille, makes the high stakes of this epic American saga piercingly real, demonstrating the War's profound impact on the individuals who served--both during the conflict and in the years after--with extraordinary humanity and emotional force."--Provided by publisher
