O. Bradley was promoted to (wartime) temporary rank of brigadier general (bypassing the rank of colonel). This rank was made permanent in September, 1943. The temporary rank was conferred to allow him to command the Infantry School at Fort Benning (he was the first from his class to become even a temporary general officer).
