Black Jack Pershing led the American Expeditionary Forces to victory in World War I, Omar Bradley led U.S. Army troops in World War II Europe, and Maxwell Taylor served as commander of the 101st Airborne Division from Normandy through the end of World War II. All three served as Army chief of staff and two as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff.
