A Soldier's Story recounts the battles of World War II from a soldier's perspective. General Omar Nelson Bradley was a senior officer of the United States Army during and after World War II. Bradley was considered "the soldiers' general— modest, industrious, above intrigue, the skilled tactician and strategist who had stood at Eisenhower's right hand in Tunisia, Sicily, and Normandy during World War II and who, before his retirement from active duty, had become Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff" (Drew Middleton, New York Times). A Soldier's Story is a compelling and vivid memoir from the greatest military tactician of our time.
Very good condition. In original tan cloth binding with black and gilt titles to spine, a red embossed facsimile signature to the front boards, and a new matching archival cloth slipcase with Bradley’s photographic portrait on the front. Internally, the pages are very clean. Numbered #650 and signed “Omar N. Bradley” on the limitation page in black ink. Numerous black and white photographs and maps throughout.
