The Marshall Plan - Since  1947

Guenter Bischof and Hans Petschar

On June 5, 1947, George C. Marshall delivered a speech in Harvard that was to change the world. With that speech, the U.S. Secretary of State and close confidant of President Truman ushered in the European Recovery Program (ERP), which soon burgeoned into the most successful political project in U.S. and European history.

Balancing the text and pictures to great effect, Günter Bischof and Hans Petschar tell the thrilling success story of the Marshall Plan and its undiminished vitality.
