Event Details

The Ridgefield Library is pleased to welcome author Ted Aldrich on Thursday, April 20th at 7:00 pm, as he discusses his new book, The Partnership: George Marshall, Henry Stimson, and the Extraordinary Collaboration That Won World War II.

On September 1, 1939, the day World War II broke out in Europe, Gen. George Marshall was sworn in as chief of staff of the U.S. Army. Ten months later, Roosevelt appointed Henry Stimson secretary of war. For the next five years, from adjoining offices in the Pentagon, Marshall and Stimson headed the army machine that ground down the Axis. Theirs was one of the most consequential collaborations of the twentieth century. A dual biography of these two remarkable Americans, The Partnership tells the story of how they worked together to win World War II and reshape not only the United States, but the world.
