This book is the story of General H. Norman Schwarzkopf - General Schwarzkopf speake openly about the events and emotions of his two tours of duty in Vietnam, of his deep respect and abiding affection for his South Vietnamese comrads. This book was a glimpse into the man that lead the first Gulf War to victory. I enjoyed it.
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.
