The Inspectors General of the United States Army, 1903-1939, the companion volume to Joseph W. A. Whitehorne's earlier study of inspection practices and experiences during the formative years from 1777 to 1903, continues the saga of the Inspector General's Department and its corps of inspectors during the growth years from 1903 to 1939. This volume is a tribute to the exceptional group of dedicated soldiers who sustained a proud tradition, and those who carry it on will find much inspiration in reading about how the inspection system has evolved and why things are done the way they are.
