"These illuminating and well-written essays review George C. Marshall s remarkable record as soldier, statesman, and leader in the first half of the American Century. The results provide nuanced and wise insight into the character and service of one of America s greatest and most selfless public servants." - Lt. General (Retired) Brent Scowcroft, National Security Advisor to Presidents Gerald Ford and George H.W. Bush and president of the Scowcroft Group "George C. Marshall was America s Pericles. By rendering the man in full, this splendidly perceptive collection of essays renews our appreciation of Marshall s matchless legacy as soldier, statesman, and exemplar of civic virtue." - Andrew J. Bacevich, author of Washington Rules: America s Path to Permanent War "George C. Marshall was one of the greatest figures of the twentieth century. This collected volume shows us why. Covering different aspects of Marshall s legacy, this book helps assure that his great example will be advanced in an era that sorely needs such a role model." - Susan Eisenhower, president of the Eisenhower Group and chair of the Eisenhower Institute s Leadership and Public Policy Programs
