I gave this book 5 stars because I loved learning about General George Marshall through the stories and letters his wife Katherine shares in the process of telling about their life together from their marriage in 1930 until he was released from his position as Chief of Staff after WWII.

I never knew much about him, having been born in the early 60s, although I had heard of the Ma ...more

Her writing "spoke" to me, I ...more

My in-laws gave us this book for Christmas. It was so interesting and inspiring to learn about such a great man (General George C. Marshall - Army Chief of Staff during WWII). As a military spouse I could appreciate and relate to some of her experiences, but I was just so impressed with all that they did!

Wow, I've never read a book by someone with so much class. General Marshall's wife was a real blue-blood, born and bred in Baltimore (I bet she went to a finishing school for ladies) — and she's a great storyteller! I learned so much about what things were like in the US during WWII, the food rationing when all people had to eat for dinner was a thin slice of meat, a ragged piece of lettuce and the false hope of more to come, what Eisenhower and Truman and Roosevelt actually did, and about what ...more
