Mark Kleiman’s got a bunch in this post with highlights from Gen. Clark’s recently released military records. Here’s a taste:
Everyone knows that the army has carried grade inflation to a point only dreamed of in the university, and that Hollywood has its press agents study efficiency ratings to learn hyperbole. But the language used about Clark by the commanders he worked for is completely off the charts. Comparisons to Marshall and MacArthur aren’t made lightly by any soldier who wants to keep the respect of his peers.
On the downside, as Kleiman points out, the Clark campaign didn’t get much coverage of this.
