Abstract:

In the critical period between 1939 and 1949, General George Catlett Marshall served his country successively as Army Chief of Staff, Special Representative to the Republic of China, and Secretary of State. In this period and in these offices, he was one of the chief architects of the strategy adopted by the United States to counter the two aggressive isms which have threatened world order and security in the 20th century Naziism and Communism. The purpose of this research paper is to trace the development and content of General Marshalls strategic thinking in the decade from 1 September 1939, when he was appointed Chief of Staff, to January 1949, when he retired as Secretary of State.
