—General Norman Schwarzkopf on Hope and Honor
"Very few soldiers achieve the rank of Major General in the U.S. Army Special Forces. That a survivor of the Kovno concentration camp could do so says great things about the U.S. Army. . . . Major General Shachnow is a great American who serves as an example to every American that freedom does not come free."—Paul Wolfowitz on Hope and Honor
"Absolutely harrowing, as vivid and frightening as any Holocaust account I've read. His Special Forces experiences in Vietnam are also astonishing. General Schachnow had a vital role in shaping America's Special Forces into the tool it is today, at the precise time it is needed."—Larry Bond, author of the New York Times bestseller Red Phoenix on Hope and Honor
"An inspiring story wonderfully told, General Shachnow's memoir is as deeply moving as it is fascinating. His journey from a childhood amid the Holocaust to become one of the U.S. Army's most effective and visionary generals is at once a testament to his personal courage, to human resilience and to America's greatness."—Ralph Peters, author of Beyond Baghdad and Fighting For The Future on Hope and Honor
"What a book! Must reading! More riveting than any novel!"—-Thomas Fleming on Hope and Honor
"Sid Shachnow's life is an inspiring story for us all. . . . His powerful narrative is a riveting read, moving and informative."—-Fred Franks, General U.S. Army (ret.), co-author with Tom Clancy of the New York Times #1 bestseller Into the Storm: A Study in Command on Hope and Honor

This was a wonderful story of the sacrifice and determination of a man who found hope and honor in a world full of hate and war. He is a great example of the courage of those who suffered in the Nazi concentration camps and also of the soldiers in our U.S. Army Special Forces units. This man overcame every obstacle the world could ever throw at him, and he still struggled to the top.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I just got the book the other day but finished it already. It's the first book I've read in years that I just couldn't put down. It is a facinating true story. This is a truly amazing tale and with some great humor. I loved it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
