Overview

The first biography of the Army general who, after achieving greatness in the very highest posts in his own service, went on to become chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He then, despite being unfairly blamed for the debacle at the Bay of Pigs, went on to serve brilliantly as Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, during one of the Cold Wars most potentially explosive periods. The breadth & scope of Lemnitzers 51-year career remain unprecedented in Amer. history. Drawing on personal correspondence, oral histories, diaries, & government files, Binder paints a portrait of a ordinary-seeming man of extraordinary courage & capability. Photos
