This book offers the first detailed study of McNair's entire career from his graduation at West Point in 1904 to his death in 1944—all of which prepared him for high-level service during WWII. This book assesses McNair's strengths and weaknesses, how they influenced his efforts to prepare the rapidly mobilizing U.S. Army for combat during the pivotal events of WWII, and the role they enabled him to play in shaping American senior leaders' thinking about modern warfare.
