Ft. Leavenworth series | Lieutenant General J.C.H. “Jesus Christ Himself” Lee

April 4, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

When the U.S. entered World War II as a belligerent, its army ranked 17th in the world in terms of capability. In May 1942, Army Chief of Staff George C. Marshall plucked a hitherto obscure Corps of Engineers officer from his duties and put him in charge of all Army sustainment operations in what would become the European theater of operations.  Who was Gen. John Clifford Hodges Lee, what did he accomplish, and why is he remembered in such a dim light by some historians? Dr. Tom Hanson presents an overview of Gen. Lee’s life and career, and explores why his contributions loom much larger than his detractors would admit.

This program is free and open to the public.
