George Marshall is well known for his accomplishments later in his career but how did he arrive at this point? Bunting answers this question with an excellent glimpse into Marshall’s early years. We see the forming of the soldier’s soldier that Marshall is. I would highly recommend this to those interested in military history.

Finally. A great book about a totally underestimated leader. I've read a lot about Marshal, but this book is finally one that does him justice.
