Mr. Perry examines the General's military strategy and profiles his team of leaders in the Pacific Theater, whose innovative operations led to victory. Mark Perry speaks at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.
Mark Perry is the author of several books, including Partners in Command: George Marshall and Dwight Eisenhower in War and Peace. He is a foreign affairs, military, and intelligence analyst, whose writing has appeared in The Los Angeles Times, Foreign Policy, and The Washington Post.
