This is a biography of one of only three World War II generals who commanded troops in both the Pacific and the European theaters. Gen. Lawton J. Collins graduated from the Military Academy in 1918, just missing combat service, and eventually rose to be a highly effective corps commander, an army chief of staff, and an ambassador. Nearly all of the text here relates to World War II, with not much on either Collins's prewar experiences or his personal life. For subject collections.
