"Using a brilliantly applied technique of 'flashbacks' juxtaposed with 'leap forwards,' Marble discusses not only what Gen. Shali accomplished during his long and distinguished career but ... [presents] Shali as a human being reacting to and being shaped by the events around him:


As a small boy witnessing brutal war; a teenager growing up in the American mid-west; an officer candidate subject to the privations of OCS; a young husband and father forced to deal with the deaths of both his wife and child; and, later, as a senior officer and nominee for his last and most prestigioius posting, having to face the very publications revelations of his father's service in Hitler's infamous Waffen SS and serious questions about his own knowledge of that part of the story."
