Damon is a professional who puts duty, honor, and the men he commands above self interest. Massengale, however, brilliantly advances by making the right connections behind the lines and in Washington's corridors of power. Beginning in the French countryside during the Great War, the conflict between these adversaries solidifies in the isolated garrison life marking peacetime, intensifies in the deadly Pacific jungles of World War II, and reaches its treacherous conclusion in the last major battleground of the Cold War -- Vietnam. A study in character and values, courage, nobility, honesty, and selflessness, here is an unforgettable story about a man who embdies the best in our nation -- and in us all.Hide synopsis

I read this book about two years ago. This book is similar to many of Myrer's books where there is a struggle (on multiple levels) between two male characters. One, who is looks within himself and follows a more moral and ethical pathway while the other "plays the game" and climbs to the top by unscrupulous power plays. Even though the book spans much of the middle 1900's through multiple wars, the story itself is timeless and applicable to many situations. All of the characters are very well developed and easy to relate with. The writing itself is at times very beautiful and almost poetic. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed other works by Myrer such as A Green Desire or The Last Convertible.
