George Marshall: Defender Of The Republic
- Soldier's Stories, Biographies & Memoirs, Politics & Law, World War II
Soldier, Statesman, Legend
Winston Churchill called him World War II's "organizer of victory." Harry Truman said he was "the greatest military man that this country ever produced." Few lives are more worthy of renewed examination than George Marshall. Long seen as a stoic, almost statuesque figure, he emerges in these pages as a man both remarkable and deeply human, thanks to newly discovered sources.
Set against the backdrop of five major conflicts—two world wars, Palestine, Korea, and the Cold War—Marshall's education in military, diplomatic, and political power, replete with their nuances and ambiguities, runs parallel with America's emergence as a global superpower. The result is a superb account of one of our most distinguished and consequential leaders.
