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.
