    1. I enjoyed this book. I think it is well written and well researched, and that the author has an affinity for his subject. But I'm not entirely satisfied. This book is more about the man than what the man did. There is much about Marshall's relationships with the women in his life, much about how he related to his peers. If you're interested in placing Marshall in full context of his life, if you want to know who Marshall was, this is a good book. If you want to know what he did, not so much. The [...]


    2. This is an accessible, entertaining introduction to a little-known giant of the 20th Century United States. Most people are aware of the Marshall Plan as a fine example of American can-do generosity, but Marshall also endured isolationists, Congressional cheapskates, shifty allies, incompetent subordinates, and the realities of electoral politics. He was given the thankless task of negotiating a settlement to the Chinese civil war, later getting thrown under the bus by McCarthyites. He was also [...]


    3. The title implies that this may be a hagiography, but in the end it turned out to be a pretty decent read. The book might have gotten the fifth star (like its subject) if it didn't beat around the bush about Marshall's first marriage, which may or may not have been consummated in its 25 years. The author discusses the marriage in Victorian terms, though while he is squeamish about the details of the marriage the author is quick to discuss the famous and glamorous women on the world stage who thr [...]


    4. really good biography, one of the best I've read. Somehow I knew little about General George C Marshall, Army Chief of Staff, Sec of Defense and oveall architect of the WWII victory. MacArthur and Patton go all the fame and glory, from the battlefields. This is quite a man, as Winston Churchill said, " the last great America." Mosley does a great job, this is a really good read, and I'm not usually a bit follower of war books.


    5. I thought it told the story of a great man a true American hero but the writing was not up to par with the kind of man that Marshall was.



    6. Leonard Mosley's , " Marshall: Hero for Our Times" is one of the best books I have ever read. It is interesting, well written, superbly researched and tells a fascinating story about a very special, unique and gifted individual. Without question, this is one of the finest "studies" about leadership I have read. I recommend Mosley's book to anyone seeking to look inside what it takes in terms of "Character, Values and Courage" to be able to rise to the top of achievement as a Leader. There are so [...]
