EVENT DETAILS

How did the United States Army Chief of Staff under Harry Truman and Franklin D. Roosevelt—the man Winston Churchill dubbed “the Organizer of Victory”—develop his impeccable leadership qualities? In a story of bravery, pragmatism, and discipline, Josiah Bunting reveals the character of one of history’s most revered generals, George C. Marshall, uncovering the General’s role in cultivating a generation of leaders dedicated to public service and commitment to their country.

Josiah Bunting III, the former president of the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation, is the author of Marshall: An American Life.
