Johnny Heller delivers an engaging and consistently solid narration of this portrait of General George Marshall. The audiobook traces his entire life, although, not surprisingly, the bulk focuses on his time as Chief of Staff of the Army during WWII and his postwar career, in particular the rebuilding of Europe. Despite the detailed approach, Heller makes the writing easy on the ear. When the authors use complex sentence structure, Heller renders it easy to follow without awkward pauses. His use of slight regional accents to set off direct quotations of different figures seems largely unnecessary. Overall, though, he does the work justice and makes it easy to listen to.
