Summary
"Spring 1916: the horror of a stalemate on Europe's western front. France and Great Britain are on one side of the barbed wire, a fierce German army is on the other. In the skies, high above the chaos on the ground, meanwhile, technology has provided a devastating new tool, the aeroplane, and with it a different kind of hero emerges -- the flying ace. These solitary knights duel in the splendor and terror of the skies, their courage and steel tested with every flight. As the conflict stretches into its third year, a neutral America is goaded into war. Yet the Americans are woefully unprepared and ill equipped to enter a war that has become worldwide in scope. Responsibility is placed on the shoulders of General John "Black Jack" Pershing, and by mid-1917 the first wave of the American Expeditionary Force arrives in Europe. From Black Jack Pershing to the Marines in the trenches, from the Red Baron to the American pilots of the Lafayette Escadrille, To the Last Man is written with the moving vividness and accuracy that characterizes Jeff Shaara's work. This spellbinding novel carries listeners to the heart of one of the greatest conflicts in human history, and puts them face-toface with the characters who made a lasting impact on the world"--
