Lead: With the shadow of war hanging over Europe, the Army’s new deputy chief of staff spoke his mind to a startled Commander in Chief.

Intro.: A Moment in Time with Dan Roberts.

Content: It was not the first time George Catlett Marshall had spoken to his superiors with unusually frank if not brutal candor. In fact he had a reputation for it. He was not a pest about it, nor did he use it as an attention getting device, nor did he seek to gain say or embarrass those set above him. He seemed to have the uncanny ability to choose the moment in which an honest assessment secured respect and appreciation rather than irritation.
