General George C. Marshall, US Army was one of the greatest world leaders of the 20th Century. His creation and expansion of the modern US military is extraordinary. His expansion of the US industrial base that supported the military expansion was extraordinary. His conception of how post-World War II Europe would be restored and the role The Marshall Plan would play in transitioning the American wartime industry to peacetime functioning without losing capacity or throwing mass numbers of people out of work.
