Reviews

"The General vs. The President is that rare military chronicle that becomes an instant page-turning classic."
--San Antonio Express-News

"Fast-paced, dramatic, and amply illustrates why Truman's stock has been on the rise in recent decades."
--Boston Globe "A vivid accounting of an event that was, on the surface, a personality conflict between two strong-minded figures and, at the bottom, a courageous act that solidified civilian authority over the military in wartime."
--Dallas Morning News "Brands spikes the shadowboxing between [Truman and MacArthur] with vivid dispatches from the battlefield that give his tale a get-along kick."
--TIME "A highly readable take on the clash of two titanic figures in a period of hair-trigger nuclear tensions . . . History offers few antagonists with such dramatic contrasts, and Brands brings these two to life."
--Los Angeles Times "Two American heroes tested and tried at their most inspired hours . . . An exciting, well-written comparison study of two American leaders at loggerheads during the Korean War crisis."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
