This is the story of General Omar N. Bradley, the man of quiet dignity yet with a punch that packed a terrific wallop. Here on film is a pictorial history of an Army general who smashed ahead with a force of almost a million and a quarter men during World War II. A military leader’s achievements are usually measured in terms of battles won. In the case of Omar Bradley, General of the Army, the scope broadens. His achievements are evaluated in the winning of a great war and laying the foundations for world peace.
