Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. General Courtney Hicks Hodges (January 5, 1887 - January 16, 1966) was an American military officer, most prominent for his role in World War II, in which he commanded the First United States Army in Northwest Europe. Hodges was born in Perry, Georgia where his father published a small-town newspaper. He attended West Point but dropped out after a year because of poor test scores ("found deficient" in mathematics). He would have graduated with the Class of 1909. In 1906 Hodges enlisted in the United States Army as a private, and became a commissioned officer three years later. He served with George Marshall in the Philippines and Patton in Mexico.show more
