Course Description

The course presents General George C. Marshall’s crucial role in the Manhattan Project, the effort that produced the first atomic bombs, and in the decision to use the bombs on Japan. It also describes his postwar involvement with nuclear weapons as US Army chief of staff, secretary of state, and secretary of defense.
