About the Author
Douglas V. Mastriano is Director of Theater Intelligence, Department of Military Strategy, Planning and Operation, at the US Army War College. A colonel in the US Army and combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, he is the author of Alvin York: A New Biography of the Hero of the Argonne.
"Mastriano enriches his narrative with an assortment of personal stories, highlighting "feats of heroism and sacrifice on both sides" during "desperate and intense" fighting. He also supplements his text with an impressive collection of photographs depicting soldiers, rather than generals, trenches, and technology. His command of the sources enriches the book throughout." -- Michigan War Studies Review
"This work takes a fresh look at the AEF's Meuse-Argonne offensive. Mastriano succinctly covers the early years of the war through America's entry, and on to the defeat of the German Kaiserschlacht. He then gives us an excellent analysis of the final Allied strategy to win the war with a series of coordinated blows. Thunder in the Argonne is an excellent read for anyone interested in World War I, the AEF, or the American soldier under fire." -- NYMAS Review
