People are familiar with the Omar Bradley of film and history books that depict him as a sidekick to more celebrated American generalsbut they do not know anything close to the truth about him. In this vital, triumphant work, Jim DeFelice at long last dispels all the misconceptions with the definitive story of this towering U.S. military figure. And he does it with the masterful style of a veteran writer.”

General Bradley was a mid-American to the core with those values being illustrated throughout his life. This is an enjoyable read for followers of military history, students of leadership skills, and good old human interest’ fans. . . . A quick read and a big help in understanding the major players and strategies of the European campaigns during WWII.”
