There are some great books about WWII. There are some great biographies of the men who fought WWII. Brothers, Rivals, Victors is a great book about relationship: the dynamic and sometime tangled relationship between three of the leading principals on the Allied side. It's history with color and depth, a history behind the scenes, told in the diaries and letters, conversations and actions. It's also history with a dashing pace, an approachable style, and a sense of balance. There are fresh nuggets for the most hard-core history buff but context for anyone who wants a great read. Highly recommended.

This is an exceptionally well written books. So often an undertaking like this leads to a very dry book, but the Jordan's style of writing flows smoothly and keeps your interest focused on the stories. Combine this with his copious use of the letters and diary entries of not only the three main characters but also those who served with them and you have a book that reads as well as any page-turner you can find. What helps to is the balance of the narrative, these men were not perfect and Jordan does not try to hide or gloss over their egos or character flaws. Consequently we get to see not only the greatness, but also the petty concerns that made them human.

Do you want a page turner,then this is your book.Jonathan Jordan did a great job with all the information about these three great generals and made it a great story not just a biography. It was a fun book to read.

I have read biographies of all three men, but the integration of their biographies in this volume was truly enlightening.

Excellent and very revealing history of the relationship between America's three most important generals in WWII. The book really portrays them as men, not cardboard figures. Highly recommended for anyone interested in the war, and for insights on leadership in general.

Eisenhower, Bradley and Patton made many a headline in the war in Europe. They were three of the biggest players in the European theater. This book tries to show the underlying personal relations between these three men in an effort to help more fully explain the teamwork that went on at the command level. From the book you can see that Patton was the personality that had the most trouble playing well with others. Even with his friends at times. Ike and Bradley were more adept at team work and had their hands full trying to keep Patton out of trouble so he could be called upon for his unique "Hell on Wheels" offensive capabilities when most needed. These men were not perfect but none of us are. They did however keep it together well enough to help defeat the Nazis. That makes them three of the good guys!

friendship between anyone from presidents to the a bomb group plus the fbi who did all background checks on arned forces officers abd gov employees and those in charge of fbi and cia. patton had great respect for rommel than anyone on his side. But hitler didnt it is said if he had let rommel head (no russia invasion) things would have gone longer. egos got in the way all the time as the old sayibg gies hokd your friends close but your ruvals foes closer
