The Making of a Professional: Manton S. Eddy, U.S.A, by Henry Gerard Phillips
Westport, Ct.: Greenwood, 2000. Pp. xx, 246. Illus, maps, notes, biblio., index. $65.00. ISBN:0-313-31183-8.
A solid biography of one of the best American division and corps commanders in the ETO during World War II, and one of the few who did not have the “advantages” of a higher education. There is a particularly valuable critical analysis of Eddy’s strengths and weaknesses. Important reading for anyone interested in the U.S. Army in World War II.
