DVD; The Great Generals

In this volume, we look at four American generals that led US forces in Europe during World War I and World War II.

John J. Pershing

Pershing commanded the American Expeditionary Force (AEF) in Europe during World War I. Upon his return in 1919, Congress awarded him the title “General of the Armies of the United States,” previously accorded only to George Washington.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

During World War II, Eisenhower proved to be the outstanding general of the war. He was chosen to lead Operation Torch, the Allied invasion of North Africa, and as Supreme Commander of Allied Forces in Europe, he oversaw Operation Overlord, the invasion of France. Eisenhower served as President of the US from 1953-1961.

Omar N. Bradley

During World War II, Bradley commanded the 12th Army Group, the largest body of American soldiers ever to serve under one field commander. His troops helped to liberate Paris and smashed the Nazi counter offensive in the Ardennes at the Battle of the Bulge.

George S. Patton

Patton commanded the 3rd Army following the Normandy invasion and played a crucial role during the Battle of the Bulge. A true icon of World War II, Patton earned the nickname “Blood and Guts” for his aggressiveness and zeal in combat.
