"There is much more to this book than the general synopsis provided. It is a story of a man who was remarkable in so many ways. A man who was both a brilliant tactician in battle and childish in his personal affairs. An outstanding read on an equally outstanding man and one you should not pass up." -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
