The George C. Marshall Museum profiles our first 5-star general, US Army Chief of Staff during World War II, the "organizer of victory," and "father of the Jeep."

The Marshall Plan, which helped rebuild war-torn Europe, was established due to his leadership, for which he won the Nobel Peace Prize.  He was the Secretary of Defense in 1950 during the Korean War.
