Book: Bradley

Bradley, by Alan Axelrod, is about Omar Bradley, a 5-star general and one of the top American commanders involved in liberating Europe during WW2. The book is a good read. It's style is pretty relaxed and lightweight (<200 pages), not bogging the reader down with too many details. If you're a history or military buff, this will be a quick read. Most of the book (naturally) focuses on Bradley's various military assignments, though there is some information on his personal life. The most interesting part for me was his interaction with other top military generals; I was surprised to read how often Eisenhower, Patton, Montgomery, and Bradley disagreed with each other and even disrespected and disobeyed each other. I recommend this biography.
