Thanks for the question...I love doing WWII work.
The quote you mentioned is used two publications that I located:
Biographical Dictionary of World War II
Mark M. Boatner III; Presidio Press, 1996
"In the spring of 1943 Lt Gen Hodges reached England to be his friend
BRADLEY's deputy and commander designate in 1st Army Hq. Army CofS
George Marshall commented in a message to Eisenhower on 28 Dec 43 that
"Hodges is exactly [the] same class of man as Bradley in practically
every respect" ( Pogue, Marshall , II, 647n20). The quiet Georgian
took over the 1st Army Hq from BRADLEY on 1 Aug 44."
The reference given for Pogue is:
George C. Marshall: Ordeal and Hope, 1939-1942. New York: Viking 1966.
Cited as Pogue, Marshall, II
The same quote is also used more fully (in pretty much the same form
as you gave it), in:
The Supreme Commander: The War Years of General Dwight D. Eisenhower
by Stephen E. Ambrose
University Press of Mississippi; Reprint edition (October 1, 1999)
and can be found on pg 312. However, no citation is given.
I trust this information fully meets your needs.
However, before rating this answer, please let me know if there's
anything else I can do for you. Just post a Request for
Clarification, and I'm at your service.
