Product Description

This is a 19 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The United States & WW II - Military Leaders - Omar Bradley. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

Promoted to lieutenant colonel in 1936, Bradley was brought to WDC two years later for duty with the War Department. Working for Marshall, who was made Army Chief of Staff in 1939, Bradley was promoted directly to brigadier general in February 1941, and sent to command the Infantry School.

While there he promoted the formation of armored and airborne forces as well as developed the prototype Officer Candidate School. With the US entry into World War II on December 7, 1941, Marshall asked Bradley to prepare for other duty.

During the campaign in Sicily, Bradley was "discovered" by journalist Ernie Pyle and promoted as the "GI General" for his unprepossessing nature and affinity for wearing a common soldier's uniform in the field.

In the wake of the success in the Mediterranean, Bradley was selected by Eisenhower to lead the first American army to land in France and to be prepared to subsequently take over a full army group. Assembling his staff in the United States, Bradley took part in the planning for D-Day (Operation Overlord).

In February 1948, Bradley was appointed Army Chief of Staff to replace the departing Eisenhower. He remained in this post only eighteen months as he was named the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on August 11, 1949.
