Description:
"As one of the nation's elite Special Forces soldiers, [Hugh] Shelton served twice in Vietnam, commanding a Green Beret unit and then an airborne infantry company ... Shelton rose up the ranks and was assistant division commander of the 101st Airborne Division as they invaded Iraq in the Persian Gulf War, then led the 20,000 American troops tasked with restoring Haiti's deposed president, John-Bertrand Aristide, to power. Promoted to four-star general, he became Commander in Chief of U.S. Special Operations Command (including Delta Force, Navy SEALS and other top-secret special missions units). But is was while serving as Chairman [of the Joint Chiefs of Staff] during both the Clinton and Bush administrations that he faced his biggest challenges, including his role of chief architect of the U.S. military response to 9/11. General Shelton speaks frankly of how decisions were made behind the inner sanctum of the E-Ring and Oval Office, and reveals key military operations and meetings that have not yet been disclosed"--Dust jacket.
