Course Description

In World War II, a war unparalleled in magnitude and in honor, millions of Americans gave their country outstanding service. The general of the United States Army, George C. Marshall, gave it victory. Statesman and soldier, he had courage, fortitude, vision, and, best of all, self-effacement. He had been a tower of strength as counselor to two commanders in chief. His standards of character, conduct, and efficiency inspired the entire army, the nation, and the world. He was a notable exception to the rule in American history that great soldiers do not make great statesmen. Marshall was a key participant in every significant event contributing to the nation's status as a superpower. To him, as much as to any individual, the United States owes its future. He takes his place at the head of the great commanders in history. | Lecture (plus questions); Listening to audio recordings; Viewing videos
