About this product
- DescriptionThe life and achievements of General Omar Nelson Bradley are legendary. During World War II, the five-star general was instrumental in the D-Day invasion and the Battle of the Bulge. But his private life has always lain just outside the reach of the media. Bradley has long been portrayed as a soft-spoken gentleman. This media-driven stereotype has pushed him aside in America's collective memory, which more readily recalls flamboyant leaders such as Patton, Eisenhower or George C. Marshall. This book re-examines the prevailing view of Bradley through a reading of unpublished sources and letters, paying special attention to his relationship with his second wife Kitty Buhler and his later years (1951-1981), a period largely igred by previous research. Bradley's life was far from boring. Behind closed doors were trysts with Hollywood starlets, a penchant for gambling at the horse track and hobbbing with high-profile stars, writers and political leaders.
