General William E. DePuy: Preparing the Army for Modern War

Henry G. Gole


Considered one of most influential U.S. military officers of the twentieth century, William E. DePuy (1919–1992) developed the education and training program that regenerated the U.S. Army after the Vietnam War. This book draws from sources such as transcripts and letters in DePuy's personal papers, interviews with those who knew him best, and secondary literature to trace DePuy's life—from child to decorated officer to commander of Training and Doctrine Command.

Keywords: William E. DePuy, U.S. military, U.S. Army, officer, commander of Training, Doctrine Command
