George C. Marshall Foundation: Testing the American Way of War


A part of the George C. Marshall Legacy Series presented by Carnegie Corporation of New York

Dr. Lengel’s presentation will cover the first American military engagements of WWI, describing how unpreparedness and bravery—as witnessed first hand by George C. Marshall and others—defined the introduction of millions of Doughboys to the challenges of modern mechanized warfare. He will also address how the Franco-American alliance was put to perhaps its greatest test, before or since—a test in which Marshall was a direct and primary participant.
