Please join author David Roll in conversation with Matthew Spence (Marshall class of 2000 and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense) to discuss his new book “George Marshall: Defender of the Republic.” David Roll’s definitive account of Marshall’s life and service to his nation, places Marshall as one of America’s most essential leaders and offers up a portrait of the man that is far more authentic and nuanced than previous biographies. Tapping into a deep array of primary sources, many revealed for the first time, Roll breaks new ground not just on Marshall’s WWII legacy, but in his roles as special envoy to China, secretary of state, and secretary of defense at the dawn of the Cold War.
“Mr. Roll’s literary monument to one of America’s most devoted soldiers is a powerful antidote to a Twitter-glutted era when political cynicism has reached its nadir and civic virtue has become a punch line.”—The Wall Street Journal
“George Marshall was the model of what a general and statesman should be: wise and nonpartisan and honorable. That is why it is so timely that this judicious biography brings him back to life for us. Using papers and material that have become available in the past three decades, David L. Roll helps reveal Marshall’s human side and how it relates to his public image and momentous achievements.”—Walter Isaacson, New York Times bestselling author of Steve Jobs and Leonardo da Vinci
“A hugely significant book on an American leader to whom freedom around the world owes an enormous debt… David Roll provides a portrait of Marshall that is far more penetrating and nuanced than past biographies and establishes very clearly that George C. Marshall was an extraordinary defender of the republic at one of the most perilous times in our history.”—General David Petraeus (US Army, Ret.)
