In The Fourth Star, you'll follow:
Masterfully written and richly reported, The Fourth Star ranges far beyond today's battlefields, evoking the Army's tumultuous history since Vietnam through these four captivating lives and ultimately revealing a fascinating irony: In an institution that prizes obedience, the most effective warriors are often those who dare to question the prevailing orthodoxy and in doing so redefine the American way of war.

Wait - don't pass this book by just because you might be against the war. This is a wonderful book about generals Petraeus, Chairrelli, Abizaid, and Casey. It traces their lives from childhood to the present making each one very human. This book contains the wonderful journalism of Jaffe and Cloud, it is written well, and read wonderfully by McGonagle. It will inform, inspire, and generate respect for these men whatever the reader's point of view.
