General David H. Petraeus (U.S. Army, Retired)
Nimrod T. Frazer has created a moving textual memorial to the men of the 167th, about whom a brigadier general once exclaimed, In time of war, send me all the Alabamians you can get, but in time of peace, for Lord’s sake, send them to somebody else!” Send the Alabamians recovers a long-forgotten chapter in Alabama history and represents an important contribution to scholarship on America and the Great War.”

—Major General Joseph Taluto (US Army, Retired), chairman Rainbow Division Veterans Foundation
"Frazier's study succeeds on at least three levels. First, it is an outstanding example of a combat history of a prominent American military unit during the Great War. Second, Frazer's study makes a contribution to the ever-growing histiography that covers the exploits of the Rainbow Division, and third, his book captures the essence of the Alabamians as a fighting collection of citizen soldiers."
