Product description

The success of the Marshall Plan in the rebuilding of a Europe devastated by World War II required the challenging efforts of many men and women. 140 Marshall Plan participants attended a commemorative conference at George Washington University on June 2, l997, the fiftieth anniversary of the Plan's announcement, along with other distinguished leaders from the United States and beneficiary countries of Western Europe. The Marshall Plan From Those Who Made it Succeed includes both conference proceedings and brief narrative memoirs of participants. Interest generated by the conference and lessons learned from the Marshall Plan's success will appeal to foreign affairs students, faculty, government officials, historians, financial assistance agencies, diplomats, and citizens at home and abroad, particularly from countries receiving Marshall Plan assistance.
