Description: The American statesman and soldier, General George Marshall (1880-1959), boldly signed this chest-up portrait of himself looking stately in a suit and tie.
Marshall rose through the army to become Chief of Staff under Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry S. Truman. He went on to serve as Secretary of State and Secretary of Defense under Truman and played such an instrumental role in the Allied victory in World War II, he was dubbed the “organizer of victory” by Winston Churchill. Marshall’s fervent push for the United States’ commitment to post-war European recovery and the Marshall Plan, which was named after him, earned him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953.
