Click to EnlargeThis highly engaging two-part documentary series profiles some of America's greatest generals of the 20th Century. Each program features vintage motion pictures and seldom seen still photographs culled from family files, museums, the military and newsreels. Ronald Reagan, Walter Cronkite, Mike Wallace and Walter Matthau narrate this volume.

GEORGE C. MARSHALL - Chief protagonist of the cross-channel invasion of Europe strategy, author of the postwar "Marshall Plan" and "true organizer of victory" according to Britain's Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

HENRY H. 'HAP' ARNOLD - Great warrior, leader, thinker and father of the modern Air Force.
