Signed book: My Experiences in the World War, Vols. 1 and 2. First edition. NY: Frederick A. Stokes, 1931. Hardcover with dust jacket, 6.75 x 9.5, 400 pages. Signed and inscribed on the first free end page of the first volume in fountain pen, "For Mrs. J. T. Dickman, In memory of the services of her distinguished husband in the World War, and with sincere good wishes, John J. Pershing." In overall very good to fine condition, with wear and chipping to the price-clipped dust jackets.

Joseph Theodore Dickman (1857-1927) was a United States Army officer who saw service in five wars, rising to the rank of major general. When the Third Army was established in 1918, Pershing placed it under Dickman's command. The Third Army's goal was to advance to the Rhein and hold the Coblenz bridgehead, then prepare to serve after the war as the Army of Occupation of the Rhineland. A unique and important association copy of Pershing's memoirs of the war, in which Dickman is mentioned a total of fifteen times.
