Date Issued:
1973
Summary:
Between 1930 and 1965, four men held such key positions in the military establishment that they essentially dominated their profession. Although their positions were first and foremost military, the non-military implications inherent in their offices were of such nature as to involve the office holder in a wide range of national affairs at the highest levels. Using as a method comparative biographical sketches of Generals of the Army Douglas MacArthur, George Marshall, Dwight Eisenhower, and General Maxwell Taylor, conelusions are derived which, it is hoped, will assist in determining an appropriate role for the Army officer in matters of national leadership.
