Autograph Inscribed Photograph: " To Captain Timothy Donohue USN, with appreciation/ and warm regards of G. C. Marshall.", vintage, 11x13½. George Catlett Marshall (1880-1959) served on General Pershing's staff during World War I, helping to plan the Meuse-Argonne offensive which hastened the defeat of Germany. He was Army Chief of Staff (1939-1945) and President Roosevelt's principle military advisor throughout World War II. He took charge of the weak, poorly-equipped US Army in 1939 and expanded it 40-fold en route to victory. Marshall, whom Winston Churchill called "the architect of victory," became the first General of the Army (5 stars) in 1944. President Truman sent Marshall in 1945 to mediate between the Communist and Nationalist forces in China, a mission which failed, and which led to attacks on the General by Senator Joseph McCarthy 8 years later. As Secretary of State (1947-1948), Marshall gave an historic 1947 speech outlining the European Recovery Program, known forever after as the Marshall Plan. He headed the American Red Cross (1949-1950). Returning to government as Secretary of Defense in 1950-1951, helping to restore morale in the Korean War. Marshall received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953, the only US general so honored. Not framed or reviewed outside of frame by Gallery of History. Fine condition. Accompanied by PSA/DNA LOA.
