Courtney Hicks Hodges deserves recognition as one of the great American military leaders. He was unique in United States military history as being the only man to rise from the rank of private to the rank of full general. His career spanned forty-four years and took Hodges around the world. Hodges served in the Philippines, participated in Pershing’s punitive expedition to Mexico, and fought in both World Wars. In spite of his distinguished career, he has been largely forgotten.
