In 1971 the Army's Military History Institute began a program of extensive taped interviews designed to record the career autobiographies of retiring senior officers. The completed results to date are now being made available for the first time in a convenient and accessible form. This collection brings together a unique series of 96 interviews conducted by experienced officers who are themselves experts in the specialties of their interview subjects. By rank, the 96 include 70 officers retiring as generals or lieutenant generals. Two are civilians with important army associations: Korean War period Secretary of War Frank Pace and House Armed Services Committee chair Dewey Short.
