Omar Nelson Bradley (1893-1981) was one of the towering American military leaders of the first half of the 20th century. After serving as an infantry school instructor, the West Point graduate took charge of the Eighty-second and Twenty-eighth Divisions during World War II. He commanded the Second Corps in the Tunisia and Sicilian campaigns, and as commander of the First Army he was instrumental to the success of the Normandy campaign. Bradley was appointed to head the Veterans Administration after the war, and at the end of his career he became a five-star general and the first-ever chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
