ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the book "The Marshall Story," by Robert Payne. The questions raised about General George C. Marshall are peculiarly relevant as the United States approaches the presidential campaign of 1952. Payne's life of Marshall, fair and friendly as it is, heightens the belief that the military mind is badly qualified to serve its citizens in an elective role. Marshall was a humane man. He told Congressional hearings that he hated war, and there is no reason to suppose that he was ever reconciled to killing.
