When ^hirshal! was Chief of StalT in the fateful clays of 1!'-H as Hitler mart-hod into Kussia, he made the mistake of telling a press conference that the Nazis would reach Moxc/ow in about six weeks.

And the plans he m«kos. plus the men he picks, win or lose his battles, One secret of George Marshall's success as Chief of Staff was his utility to pick good men. On the whole they were also men who i'e- spacted civil liberties. By and large they believed that the job of the Army was to fight, not '° interfere with peacetime affairs. Marshall .himself, seldom chafocl .it Congressional criticism. One of the Army's critics long has been GOP Congressman Albeit Engel of Michigan, who once accused thc.Wnr Department of 30 per cent waste In cantonment construction, Instead of grousing at gadfly Engel.
