Publisher's Summary

Known by his troops in World War II as "The GI General" because of his close identification with the men under his command, Omar Bradley commanded the U.S. Twelfth Army Group in Europe. By the spring of 1945, this group contained four field armies, 12 corps, 48 divisions, and more than 1,300,000 men, the largest exclusively American field command in U.S. history.A mild mannered man, General Bradley created the impression less of a soldier than of a teacher, which he was during much of his early career in the Army. He earned a reputation as an eminent tactician and rose through the ranks to become a five-star general.

Bradley

This is a typical well researched paper that does a very food job of pointing out the importance of the man Bradley. I enjoyed it very much but as I listened to it I wanted the author to give me more details about the conflicts that existed between the allied Generals, ie Patton, Ike Montgmery. The author does a very nice job of taking us through Bradleys career and brings out many points that are not generally known about the man. Well written and interesting, I recommend it to young military officers and NCO's, here is a man that can be a model for excellent leadership.

Great picture created

This book creates an excellent picture of a soldier's general. A leader passionate about his men. Not a brilliant tactician or with a feel for war like Patton, but an intelligent and talented general.
