"Unprecedented is the only word for it. General Marshall has to deal with nine theaters of operations, directing an overseas force scattered over six continents; not battle plans alone, but the equally important business of providing each theater, and clamoring allies as well, with the necessary supplies, assembling these supplies at ports of embarkation, finding the ships and then hurrying them over 56,000 miles of protected communication lines, every mile a gauntlet. On top of this, there are the home front with more than 7,000,000 selectees to be clothed, fed, trained and conditioned and the necessity of close co-ordination with Congress, Navy, State Department and White House: a crushing load, yet General Marshall takes it in his stride... Paraphrasing Napoleon, who said that the humblest soldier carried a marshal's baton in his knapsack, General Marshall gave out that every man in Uncle Sam's Army had a star in his pocket."
