A selective edition of the papers of George Catlett Marshall, Jr. (1880 –1959), an American military leader, Secretary of State, and the third Secretary of Defense. Once noted as the "organizer of victory" by Winston Churchill for his leadership of the Allied victory in World War II, Marshall served as the United States Army Chief of Staff during the war and as the chief military adviser to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. At Harvard University in the spring of 1947, Marshall’s speech broadly outlined for Europeans to create their own plan for rebuilding Europe after World War II, funded by the United States. In 1953 Marshall received the Nobel Peace Prize for what is widely known as the Marshall Plan.

Complete in a seven-volume edition.
