Orson Welles on George C. Marshall

I’ll have to write more about my hero George C. Marshall, VMI 1901, Army Chief of Staff 1939-1945, Secretary of State and Defense, and the only American professional soldier to receive the Nobel Prize for Peace, but for now I’ll post the clip below.  Orson Welles, who met many of the famous and distinguished people of his day, called Marshall the greatest man he had ever met.  A nice anecdote and tribute from a great artist to a great soldier.

One thought on “Orson Welles on George C. Marshall

  1. I saw this interview and found it fascinating. I think of it when I see WWll documentaries that mention Marshall.
