"George W. Goethals (1858-1928) played a substantial role in bringing to a conclusion a decades-long process of military reform that stretched from late-nineteenth-century experiments with postgraduate military education to the ultimate realization of the potential of those reforms immediately before and during World War II. Rory McGovern uses Goethals's career as a lens through which to examine the transformation of the US Army in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries."--Provided by publisher
