Summary
"Blending narrative and carefully transcribed excerpts from his journals, Pogue's War: Diaries of a WWII Combat Historian is the book that Forrest C. Pogue always meant for publication but never found time to complete. Best known for his four-volume biography of General George G. Marshall and for The Supreme Command, an account of Eisenhower's leadership in the European Theater, Pogue was one of the Army's greatest WWII combat historians. Distinguished by his use of well-honed interviewing skills to recreate the action, Pogue was able to connect with everyone from the lowest private to the highest-ranking general."--Jacket
