Historian and New York Times bestselling author Andrew Carroll will be at the Hartford Public Library speaking about his new book “My Fellow Soldiers: General John Pershing and the Americans Who Helped Win the Great War”. The book is a comprehensive telling of the American experience in the war based on eyewitness accounts by General Pershing and other senior officers, as well as the troops, aviators, and nurses who risked—and often gave—their lives during this conflict. Many of their letters and diaries, including some by Pershing, will be published for the first time in the book.
