About this title


Looks at the careers of Eisenhower, Bradley, Marshall, Clark, Halsey, Stilwell, MacArthur, and Patton, and explains how they were selected for leadership positions without combat experience

From Library Journal:

James, best known for his definitive three-volume biography of Douglas MacArthur, integrates archival research and an encyclopedic knowlede of published sources in this unique survey. It focuses on the men who held posts above the field army/fleet level. Scholars and general readers alike will admire James's ability to summarize without becoming superificial and to analyze without becoming judgmental. While recognizing tensions and antagonisms among his protagonists, James accurately stresses an underlying consensus of goals and attitudes. Even such controversial figures as MacArthur and Mark Clark emerge as ulimately more concerned with winning the war than with feeding their egos. Dennis E.
