Military Personnel
    (February 12, 1893-April 8, 1981)
    Commanded troops in North Africa, leader of the invasion of Sicily (1943)
    Commander of the US 12th Army Division in Europe (1944-1945)
    Was the first chairman of the US Army Joint Chiefs of Staff (1949-1953)
    President Roosevelt disliked him because Bradley refused to laugh at any of President Roosevelt's jokes.
    He blamed a lot of his troop's problems on the British military.
    He had conflicts with both George S. Patton and Bernard Law Montgomery.
    In 1950, he traveled to Japan to see Douglas MacArthur, the two soon got into an argument after Bradley accused MacArthur of having 'an obsession for self-glorification.'
    He remarried only a few months after his first wife's death in 1965, even though he was 72 years old at the time.
    He smoked.
    For some unknown reason, he had plans to secretly re-arm Japan after WW II.
    He was a 'common soldier's general,' meaning he disliked the high command, and enjoyed the company of regular GI's.
    Soldiers under his command advanced out of the Normandy beachhead and made their way to liberate Paris (1944).
    His troops seized the first bridgehead over the Rhine River, and drove through central Germany to establish first contact with the Red Army.
    By the end of WW II, he was in control of 4 field armies which consisted of 12 corps, 48 divisions, and over 1,300,000 GIs. It was the largest American field command in US Army history.
    He tried to prevent US involvement in the Korean War.
    He was in the Army for almost 38 years (1915-1953).
