Summary
Known by his troops in World War II as "The Soldier's General" because of his care of and compassion for the soldiers under his command, Omar Bradley commanded the U.S. Twelfth Army Group in Europe. By the spring of 1945, this group contained four field armies, twelve corps, forty-eight divisions, and more than 1,300,000 men, the largest exclusively American field command in U.S. history. A mild mannered man, General Bradley created the impression less of a soldier than of a teacher, which he was during much of his early career in the Army. He earned a reputation as an eminent tactician and rose through the ranks to become a five-star general
