George C. Marshall Servant of the American Nation (Hardcover)
From the Publisher:
In George C. Marshall: Servant of the American Nation, a talented cast of historians and social scientists provide fresh insights and perspectives into the exceptional life of a distinguished American soldier-statesman. Marshall’s extraordinary career in the first half of the twentieth century paralleled the emergence of the United States as a global power. Indeed, this great servant leader contributed substantively to almost every important event and issue comprising that rise to power. The essays collected here are organized around the major roles assumed by Marshall over those five decades and provide an unusually balanced look at the key issues of the era. As a result, they also shed important light on the legacy of his enigmatic commander in chief, Franklin D. Roosevelt.
