Command of Honor
General Lucian Truscott's Path to Victory in World Warr IIBook - 2009
General Lucian K. Truscott was an American military giant- tough, resourceful, and devoted to the men under his command. Unlike the more flamboyant, high-ranking European field commanders of the time, he was neither arrogant nor in pursuit of personal glory abut rather a loyal, humble man who led his troops from the front and fought every enemy with a tenacity that made him one of the most respected and revered commanders in the U.S. Army.
In Command of Honour author H. Paul Jeffers chronicles the life of this American hero, from his ramshackle childhood in Texas and Oklahoma, to the defeat of Nazi Germany. But this is above all a story of service and sacrifice by a man who lived for duty, honour, and courage man who would become a legend in the annals of World War II.
