Praise

“This is the memoir America wishes Jim Mattis had written.” 
The Washington Post


“For all of you who’ve been waiting for a tell-all account of Jim Mattis’ 710 days as President Trump’s first Pentagon chief, that book has now been written.”
—NPR

“Snodgrass’s account of the wild briefing provides a taste of his on-the-record, eyewitness candor about the two years Mattis spent trying to keep things from spinning out of control—a candor readers will not find in the former defense secretary’s own circumspect memoir.…Snodgrass…has stepped forward to fill some of the vacuum created by Mattis’s silence.…Snodgrass saw more than enough for his memoir to take its place in the growing annals of government dysfunction.” 
NYT 

“[T]his book is a graduate course in understanding the dynamics and processes at the highest level of the U.S. military.”
—CIMSEC

“[A] fly-on-the-wall view of how the retired general operated at the Pentagon amid myriad crises, from issues with North Korea and Iran to trying to get on the same page with a chaotic White House.”
Task & Purpose

“[A] must-read (if not a cautionary tale) for any professionals—military or otherwise—who desire access to the biggest levers of power.”
—Military.com
