Abstract:

"On June 14, 1951--before the U.S. Senate--Senator Joseph R. McCarthy of Wisconsin reviewed the public career of General George G. Marshall. It was a long and amply documented speech in which no holds were barred. This book is a condensed version of that speech --with the asides cut out--and with new material added, including the treatment accorded the speech by the press. 'My discussion of General Marshall's career,' writes the Senator, 'arose naturally and inevitably out of a long and anxious study of the retreat from victory which this Administration has been beating since 1945. In company with so many of my fellow citizens, I have become alarmed and dismayed over our moral and material enfeeblement. The fact that 152 million Americans have been required by the party in power to adopt Marshall's global strategy during a period of time when the life of our civilization hangs in the balance, would seem to make it imperative that his complete record, regardless of how good or bad, be subjected to the searching light of public scrutiny.'"--Dust jacket.
