March, Peyton C.
March's major achievement was the shipment of 1.75 million men to France in time to turn the tide to victory. In his remaining years in office, until 1921, he supervised the demobilization of the wartime army and the reorganization of the postwar army. As the nation's first strong wartime chief of staff, he developed a tense relationship with field commander Gen. John J. Pershing, but he laid the foundation for the future power of that office. In 1932, March published The Nation at War, an account of his and the General Staff's contributions in World War I.
