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.

"He was America's General, embodying...core values of integrity and respect that reflected the democracy he served....the leadership lessons are universal, and they are timeless." (Lt. Gen. [Ret.] Daniel Christman, former superintendent, U.S. Military Academy, West Point)
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.
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.
