Dubbed by the World War II press as "The GI General" because of his close identification with his men, Omar Bradley rose to command the U. S. 12th Army Group in the European Campaign. By the spring of 1945, this group contained 1,300,000 men--the largest exclusively American field command in U.S. history. Mild mannered, General Bradley was a dedicated mentor, the creator of the Officer Candidate School system, and a methodical tactician who served through World War II. Then, as a five-star general, he lifted the Veterans Administration from corruption and inefficiency to a model government agency, served as U.S. Army chief of staff, first chief of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and head of NATO. Alan Axelrod applies his signature insight and compelling prose to the life, strategy and legacy of the general who remains the model for all commanders today as the man who revolutionized the National Guard, shaped the US army's focus on the individual soldier, and emphasized cooperation and coordination among the military services--a cornerstone of modern U.S. military doctrine.

Having read several of the Great General Series, I found Alan Axelrod's work, dull and boring. By the time I finished the book, I had this feeling of still waiting for something to happen, for something in those 14 chapters to reach out and grab me; to make me want to know more about General of the Army Omar Nelson Bradley. Sadly, it never happened. When the final chapter of this work is entitled: "Why Bradley Matters" one should be forewarned that this is not the most captivating story of a great American general.

That being said in Axelrod's defense, General Omar Bradley is not the most captivating of subjects to write about. He did not lead an interesting life as some of the other generals that are storied in the Great General Series.

While Bradley is not the most interesting of American generals; I still recommend reading this work because it gives some very good insight into Bradley's impact in WW2 and sheds light on General George Patton without glorifying him. One might be best served by reading Chapter 14, "Why Bradley Matters" first and then go back and read the entire book to have a better appreciation of General Bradley and his contributions to the US Army.

This is an excellent BRIEF bio of one of WW IIs senior U.S. commanders. Good background on the life of one of the lesser known five-star generals. Author claims that this was beceause he was less flashy and therefore got less press than Patton, Eisenhower and LeMay. Telling sign of his abilities is that he started the war as Patton's subordinate and finished the war as Patton's commander.

Bradly not only helped bring the war in Europe to a successful conclusion, but guided improvements in the Veterans Administration after the war. He became the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and left his mark on that organization as well.

The author not only tells you who he was and what he did, but explains why the "Soldiers' General" was important to the war effort and to the future of the U.S. Army. This analysis may be more useful than the story of his early life.

This is a brief, 200 page, wave-top survey of Bradly, but it is sufficient for anyone interested to get a good appreciation of the man.
