    A new take

    I really enjoyed this view of Generals Eisenhower and Marshall. By chronicling Eisenhower's development and growth as a leader fostered by Marshall, the author provides a unique perspective on Eisenhower, but also a wonderful, balanced portrayal of Marshall as well. None of us develops without interaction with others and most leaders have a mentor. The author does not directly make the case that neither Eisenhower nor Marshall would have been as successful without the other, but both their personalities and skills portrayed in this book make a strong case that both were uniquely suited for the jobs they had. The U.S. may still have prevailed in World War II had one or the other, or both, not been in the position they were in, but how battles played out may have been different. This was a very readable and interesting view of two great men.
