Comments: The West Point class of 1915 has been called “the class that stars fell on” by historians. The class produced two five-star Generals of the Army, two four-star generals and seven three-star lieutenant generals. General Omar Bradley would serve as senior officer of the United States Army during WWII and the first Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Dwight D. Eisenhower would serve as Supreme Allied Commander and the 34th President of the United States.
