I joke that this is a biography of St. Francis in a General's uniform. Born in the Reconstruction South, he is largely responsible for the reconstruction of Germany after Hitler. His organizational abilities combined with compassion and a clear vision of how to create a democracy from ashes has a lot to teach us today. Interesting reporting of the creation of the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex and of the division of Europe after WWII. Human scale history.
