Summary
"Omar Bradley rose to the pinnacle of the American military establishment and was the last of the major World War II military leaders to pass from the scene. Usually included as the final and youngest of the "five stars," he had the most combat experience of the three American Army Goup commanders in Europe during World War II and was our most important ground commander. Bradley's postwar career ensures his legacy as one of the architects of US Cold War global strategy. These latter contributions, as much as Bradley's demonstrable World War II leadership, shaped US history and culture in decisive, dramatic, and previously unexamined ways."--
