Jake Devers (1897--1979) was one of only two officers -- the other was Omar C. Bradley -- to command an army group during the decisive campaigns of 1944--1945 that liberated Europe and ended the war with Nazi Germany. After the war, Devers led the Army Ground Forces in the United States and eventually retired in 1949 after forty years of service.

Eisenhowers. Wheelers exhaustively researched chronicle of Deverss life and career reveals a leader who demonstrated an extraordinary ability to cut through red tape and solve complex problems. Nevertheless, Eisenhower disliked Devers -- a fact laid bare when he ordered Deverss Sixth Army Group to halt at the Rhine. After the war, Eisenhowers and Bradleys accounts of the generals disagreements over strategy and tactics became received wisdom, to the detriment of Deverss reputation.An essential contribution to twentieth-century history, Jacob L. Devers provides a fresh and nuanced interpretation of the senior command during World War II and offers a new perspective on a highly accomplished soldier.
