Soldier, Statesman, Peacemaker: Leadership Lessons from George C. Marshall By Jack Uldrich (Amazon) I wasn’t really familiar with Marshall. As the first chapter is aptly titled “The Unknown Famous American”, it seemed I wasn’t alone. But as I continued to read it was evident that his influence on the United States as General of the Army, Secretary of State and as a leader, during the twentieth century was vital. Many have spoken of his greatness, “Winston Churchill called him the "organizer of victory" and "the last great American." Dwight D. Eisenhower said of Marshall, "Our people have never been so indebted to any other soldier." And Harry Truman referred to him as the "great one of the age.” Some remarkable praise from other leaders whom many leaders of today try to emulate. I must say that I took away more from this book than many others I have read, both from a leadership perspective and that of being a good person. George C. Marshall is someone worth learning from.
