Praise

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
