The Partnership: George Marshall and Henry Stimson

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic On September 1, 1939, the day World War II broke out in Europe, General George Marshall was sworn in as Chief of Staff of the US Army. Ten months later Roosevelt appointed Henry Stimson as Secretary of War, overseeing the armed forces of the United States. In this study group, we will read and discuss The Partnership: George Marshall, Henry Stimson, and the Extraordinary Collaboration That Won World War II by Edward Farley Aldrich (Stackpole Books, 2022 ed.). We will explore the lives of both men, two remarkable Americans, from the first half of the 20th century through the World War II years. The World War II years concentrate on logistics rather than battles. General David Petraeus, U.S Army (ret.) has stated that "...victory in war usually goes to the side that can outlast an enemy, continue to provide logistical support to its troops and survive economically." This is a well-written book that will help us explore the decision making and the collaborations that helped lead the allies to a victory in World War II.
