About the Lecture

Secretary of Defense George C. Marshall led a coalition of civilian and military defense officials that supported the State Department and President Truman’s determination to limit the Korean War.  Their common goal was to establish a firm national commitment to strategic nuclear deterrence and forward collective defense.  They succeeded despite the opposition of a group of isolationist and “ Asia First” members of Congress.
