Summary
He was known as "the G.I. General"--humble, self-effacing, hard-working, reflecting the small-town virtues of the America whose uniform he wore. But those very virtues have led historians to neglect General Omar Bradley--until now. Military historian Jim DeFelice, in this, the first-ever in-depth biography of America's last five-star general, tells Bradley's full story, and argues that the neglected G.I. General did more than any other to defeat Hitler in World War II. While Patton garnered much of the glory, Eisenhower claimed much of the world's respect, and British General Montgomery kept the Union Jack flying, as DeFelice proves, it was the unassuming Bradley who actually developed the strategy and the tactics that won the war in Europe.--From publisher description
