If Army General Hugh Shelton's name is unknown to the American public, it is more a reflection of media overload than lack of achievement. The now retired 34-year Army veteran served as the Fourteenth U.S. Joint Chief of Staff (1997-2001) and as commander in chief of U.S. Special Operations Commander (1996-1997). In his two Vietnam tours, this U.S. Special Forces officer earned a Purple Heart, a Congressional Medal, and six Distinguished Service Medals. In this richly detailed memoir, he talks about his long career and tells us what it felt like to be the highest ranking military officer on the morning of September 11th.
