"A superb portrait of a group of army officers that deserves to be read by everyone interested in World War II."--Jonathan House, author of Combined Arms Warfare in the Twentieth Century
"A crisply written study and effective introduction to the relationship of Marshall and his lieutenants as they waged war in an extremely complex international conflict. It deserves a wide readership."--Kevin C. Holzimmer, author of General Walter Krueger: Unsung Hero of the Pacific War
