Summary
Despite a career serving six different presidents, there were two wars the former secretary of defense had yet to fight. Here, Gates recounts his return to duty for Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama as he speaks on the call to duty that led him away from his post as Texas A&M University president and took him back to Washington, where he assisted troops during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. 640pp., 200K, Auth res: WA, Color Photos
