Team America


By the first half of the twentieth century, technology had transformed warfare into a series of intense bloodbaths in which the line between soldiers and civilians was obliterated, resulting in the deaths of 100 million people. During this period, four men exhibited unrivaled military prowess that led the United States victoriously through two world wars: George Patton, Douglas MacArthur, George Marshall, and Dwight Eisenhower; or, as bestselling author Robert O’Connell calls them, “Team America.”

O’Connell captures these men’s unique charisma as he chronicles the paths they forged—from their upbringings to their educations to their storied military careers—experiences that shaped them into majestic leaders who would play major roles in saving the free world and preserving the security of the United States in times of unparalleled danger. O’Connell shows how the lives of these men—all born within the span of a decade—twisted around one another like a giant braid in time. Throughout their careers, they would use each other brilliantly in a series of symbiotic relationships that would hold increasingly greater consequences. Without these men, O’Connell makes clear, the world we know would be vastly different.
