Over the many years that George C. Marshall played an active role in major world affairs, he saw the relationships between the United States and other countries, as well as his personal relationships with many leaders, change dramatically. In the aftermath of World War II former allies such as the Soviet Union and China became fierce enemies. The conclusion of World War II and Marshall’s subsequent resignation as Army chief of staff resulted in gradual changes in Marshall’s domestic relationships as well.
This next sequence of the Marshall Legacy Series, “friends” in high places, reveals some of these changing relationships and the patience with which Marshall navigates through some of his most difficult diplomatic experiences at home and abroad. In some cases Marshall must lose ground in order to keep the peace. Visitors will see the lengths to which Marshall goes to avoid giving up or giving in.
