Len's Summary: The new one-volume biography of General John J. Pershing Until the Last Trumpet Sounds by Gene Smith (John Wiley & Sons) was panned by The New York Times, but got a better review from historian Rod Paschall writing for MHQ. Black Jack’s best biographies are multi-volume — Frank Vandiver’s and Donald Smythe’s come to mind — so this one is a handy, quick reference that captures the fundamentals of Pershing’s life.
