Summary

General Pershing, Commander-in-Chief of the American Expeditionary Force, leads the way in this photograph. He has just disembarked from a boat and is being escorted by members of the French forces. This photograph was most likely taken by John Warwick Brooke, who was known for his informal and un-posed shots taken during formal occasions...After maintaining a neutral stance for the first three years, America finally entered the War in April 1917. Soon after, the American Expeditionary Force under the command of Pershing arrived in France. It is possible this photograph was taken during that first arrival...[Original reads: 'OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN ON THE BRITISH WESTERN FRONT. Lt. Gen. Pershing the Chief of American Expeditionary Force, landing off the boat in France.']..digital.nls.uk/74547922 ( http://digital.nls.uk/74547922 )
