First, remember this book was written before GN Mattis became the Secretary of Defense. No current political topics under President Trump occurred during the timeline of this book. Second, as a former Grunt, the leadership lessons offered in this book are amazing. I’m sure this will be on the Commandant’s recommended readling list. As someone that spent time in the first gulf war, then Iraq and Afganistan, it is nice to hear some insight into the friction between the military commanders and the White House. Third, we can’t undo the mistakes of the past, but we may hope to learn from history.
Great perspective on recent military issues! Chaos is a outstanding title for the book.
For a man who is, by every account, a man of character an honor, this is a clear cut reason to look forward and to 'Hold the Line!'
War heroes, or any person having served deserve the utmost respect from the citizens of the U.S., but this book reflects a makeover of the facts of the last several years. We have a current sitting president unlike any other, now we need heroes of the truth to prevail. Expected more honesty and the TRUTH.
