FORT BRAGG, N.C., – In the aftermath of World War II, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower wrote, “Gen. [Lucius D.] Clay is one of the ablest officers the Army has produced, particularly in the keenness of his intellect, his profound understanding of organization and the zeal with which he applies himself to every task. While his work has not brought him actual battle command experience I believe that his work as the American administrator in Germany will come to be recognized, when that work is fully understood, as one of the outstanding contributions to our country.” Gen. Omar N. Bradley in turn described him as a “brilliant administrator.”
