As the conflict stretches into its third year, a neutral America is goaded into war, with its reluctant president, Woodrow Wilson, finally accepting the repeated challenges to his stance of nonalignment. Yet the Americans are woefully unprepared and ill equipped to enter a war that has become worldwide in scope. The responsibility is placed on the shoulders of General John "Blackjack" Pershing, and by mid-1917 the first wave of the American Expeditionary Force arrives in Europe. Encouraged by the bold spirit and strength of the untested Americans, the world waits to see if the tide of war can finally be turned.
From Blackjack Pershing to the Marine in the trenches, from the Red Baron to the American pilots of the Lafayette Escadrille, To the Last Man paints a vivid portrait and is written with the intensity and accuracy that characterizes all of Shaara's work. This spellbinding novel carries readers to the heart of one of the greatest conflicts in human history, and puts them face-to-face with characters who made a lasting impact on the world.

Shaara good as always
Mr. Shaara does is again! This was a great book. He does not cover all of the first world war, but does a good job of the Red Baron, Gen Pershing, and the common foot soldier,
You can almost place yourself in the trenches. It was also interesting to see the Politics the Pershing had to contend with.
A great book, I hope the unabridged version comes out soon on Audible.
