Very interesting book! My husband and I both really enjoyed the insight into this remarkable man and his life and the indepth behind-the-scenes account of Desert Storm. Even for folks familiar with the military, we learned alot about what it really takes to engage in war. Norman Schwarzkopf was so well-suited to the job he was given in history.

I really enjoyed reading this autobiography. General Schwarzkopf writes in a way that makes it easy for a non-military person to understand what happened during the first Gulf War. You really begin to understand just how intelligent the General is. He also has a very human side when it comes to his friends and family. This is a good book.

I say..'Thank God for Schwarzkopf'!

From back of book....
He set his star by a simple motto: duty, honor, country. Only rarely does history grant a single individual the ability, personal charisma, moral force, and intelligence to command the respect, admiration, and affection of an entire nation. But such a man is General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, commander of the Allied Forces in the Gulf War. Now, in this refreshingly candid and typically outspoken autobiography, General Schwarzkopf reviews his remarkable life and career: the events, the adventures, and the emotions that molded the character and shaped the beliefs of this uniquely distinguished American leader.
