The Character of George Marshall

David M. Abshire begins his reflection on George C. Marshall with an interesting question: Why would FDR and Churchill, arguably two of the greatest men of the twentieth century, select Marshall as the greatest man they ever knew? The answer lies in his commitment to service, duty and honor in leadership. The lessons from the life of George Marshall reinforce the importance of character-based leadership in America today.
