Brothers, Rivals, Victors
Jonathan Jordan presented a biography of Generals Dwight Eisenhower, George Patton, and Omar Bradley during World War II. The author explores the personal and working relationships of the three men, all graduates of West Point, who were equally friends and opponents. Mr. Jordan examines the generals' debates and shared military decisions while leading the Allies in the European theater as well as each man’s career following the war. Mr. Jordan showed some slides during his presentation and afterward responded to questions from members of the audience. This was a presentation of the Meet the Author Series on May 3, 2011, at the Stage Door Canteen of the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. close
