Jonathan W. Jordan is the author of American Warlords: How Roosevelt's High Command Led America to Victory in World War II and the award-winning Lone Star Navy: Texas, the Fight for the Gulf of Mexico, and the Shaping of the American West. He lives in Georgia.
"Bradley, Eisenhower, and Patton had one thing, above all else, in common: their willingness to give every last measure in the service of their country. Jordan's book, while a rollicking good read, succeeds brilliantly in reminding us of this dedication, and of how fortunate the Allies were to have such exceptional soldiers leading the long, bloody march to victory."--Alex Kershaw, World War II magazine "Anybody who believes that generals are just, rational men, imbued with a soldierly feeling of comradeship toward one another and an ingrained respect for their political superiors, will be shocked by this book."--Michael Korda, The New York Times Book Review "A masterly, exciting study of character and tactics in World War II."--Kirkus, starred review "This is an exceptional book.... Jordan has produced what is in many ways a paragon of modern biographies.... A must-have for any shelf of serious leadership texts."--Naval War College Review "Jonathan W. Jordan's Brothers, Rivals, Victors is a landmark publication in the history of the Second World War."--Douglas Brinkley, New York Times bestselling author of The Boys of Pointe du Hoc "One of the great stories of the American military, of how Patton, Eisenhower and Bradley, three very different men, came together to change the world. It is told here by Jonathan Jordan with insight and compassion, relish and vigor. I read it in two sittings."--Thomas E. Ricks, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Generals "Jonathan W. Jordan has pulled off a mission impossible: He has produced a groundbreaking study that transforms our understanding of all three men...This book should be required reading at West Point and all other military academies. It is beautifully written and a classic work of popular biography and military history for the general reader. It is a pleasure to recommend it."--The Washington Times "An intimate, well-researched and gracefully-written portrait of three important generals--Jordan succeeds in bringing Patton, Brad and Ike to life once again. Brothers, Rivals, Victors is full of fresh insight and compelling drama. You will have trouble putting this book down."--John C. McManus, Author of The Dead and Those About to Die "Jordan's work will put the war into a new perspective for many readers--a must-read for anyone interested in World War II, or who wants to know something about how command decisions are actually made." --Jim DeFelice, Author of Omar Bradley: General at War From the Hardcover edition.
