The extraordinary career of George Catlett Marshall—America’s most distinguished soldier–statesman since George Washington—whose selfless leadership and moral character influenced the course of two world wars and helped define the American century.   “Enthralling.”—Andrew Roberts • “Important.”—William I. Hitchcock • “Majestic.”—Susan Page • “Engrossing.”—Andrew J. Bacevich • “Judicious.”—Walter Isaacson • “Definitive.”—Kirkus Reviews Winston Churchill called him World War II's "organizer of victory." Harry Truman said he was "the greatest military man that this country ever produced." Today, in our era of failed leadership, few lives are more worthy of renewed examination than Marshall and his fifty years of loyal service to the defense of his nation and its values.  Even as a young officer he was heralded as a genius, a reputation that grew when in WWI he planned and executed a nighttime movement of more than a half million troops from one battlefield to another that led to the armistice. Between the wars he helped modernize combat training, and re-staffed the U.S. Army's officer corps with the men who would lead in the next decades. But as WWII loomed, it was the role of army chief of staff in which Marshall's intellect and backbone were put to the test, when his blind commitment to duty would run up against the realities of Washington politics. Long seen as a stoic, almost statuesque figure, he emerges in these pages as a man both remarkable and deeply human, thanks to newly discovered sources. Set against the backdrop of five major conflicts—two world wars, Palestine, Korea, and the Cold War—Marshall's education in military, diplomatic, and political power, replete with their nuances and ambiguities, runs parallel with America's emergence as a global superpower. The result is a defining account of one of our most consequential leaders.

David Roll provides a portrait of Marshall that is far more penetrating and nuanced than past biographies and establishes very clearly that George C. Marshall was an extraordinary defender of the republic at one of the most perilous times in our history.”—General David Petraeus (US Army, Ret.)

The Bellagio Dialogue explored wide-ranging and multifaceted issues associated with international migration in order to glean insights, share best-practices, and propose an agenda for future research. The approach of the month-long project was to treat migration as an enduring phenomenon and seek to make it work better for all those who are affected by it. George Marshall by David L. Roll -

“George Marshall: Defender of the Republic,” with David L. Roll at the Bryant Park Reading Room (July 17): “There are few men,” reflected Winston Churchill, “whose qualities of mind and character have impressed me so deeply as those of General Marshall.” A leader of monumental significance in guiding the free world through World War II and picking up the pieces afterward, George Marshall left an indelible mark on American politics and foreign policy as both a general and a statesman.
