The Generals

Celebrated historian Winston Groom tells the story of three remarkable men-at-arms who rose from the gruesome hell of the First World War to become the finest generals of their generation during the Second World War. George Marshall, George Patton, and Douglas MacArthur redefined America's ideas of military leadership and brought forth a new generation of American soldier. Their efforts revealed to the world the grit and determination that would become synonymous with America in the post-war years.

WINSTON GROOM is the author of 14 previous books of nonfiction and fiction, including Shiloh, 1862; Vicksburg, 1863; Patriotic Fire; Shrouds of Glory; Forrest Gump; and Conversations With the enemy (with Duncan Spencer), which was a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
