"Must reading for those who knew Johnson--and for scholars and history buffs who specialize in military leadership."--Infantry"Sorley has made a significant contribution to our understanding of American policy and strategy in the Vietnam War and American civil-military relations. It is an important book."--Journal of Military History"Sorley has done a magnificent job of detailing the life of a remarkable American and soldier."--Armor"Offers welcome analytical insight into the character of an officer who, as Army chief of Staff and member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, numbers among the top Vietnam-era service leaders who have been harshly criticized."--Parameters"To fully understand Harold Johnson's role and fault in determining US military policy toward the Vietnam War, Sorley's book should be read along with analyses of the Joint Chiefs' interactions and critical reviews of McNamara's role as secretary of defense."--Military Review"This superb work about a less-publicized leader is a useful addition to the study of military history and Vietnam."--Journal of American History"This superb book not only covers the life of a very special military officer, but also focuses on what current military officers should be studying. Don't miss the wisdom of this book."--Marine Corps Gazette"Sorley reveals Harold Johnson the man, not just the general."--Army History
"This splendid and fascinating biography traces the career of an outstanding soldier who had the terrible luck to make it to the top of his profession just as LBJ took over micro-management of the conflict in Vietnam. Recommended without reservation (and I'd like to see it made required reading for all future generals, who will find much to contemplate)."--Stephen E. Ambrose, author of Undaunted Courage and Citizen Soldiers"A significant contribution to our understanding of the Vietnam War and a timely commentary on military leadership, especially its moral dimensions. Harold Johnson very much exemplified the kind of moral leadership that all of the military services are trying to recapture today."--Colonel Harry G. Summers, Jr., author of On Strategy and editor of Vietnam magazine"A magnificent biography and compelling portrait of a courageous, devoted man. Full of enlightening new details concerning America's strategic approach to Vietnam, Honorable Warrior provides unique insight into the nature of civil-military relations at the highest level of American government."--H.R. McMaster, author of Dereliction of Duty: Johnson, McNamara, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies That Led to Vietnam"A brilliant work of heart and art about a bona fide American hero. I have never read a biography--including Douglas Southall Freeman's Robert E. Lee--that moved me so much."--General Bruce Palmer, Jr., author of The Twenty-Five Year War: America's Military Role in Vietnam"A superb book that deserves a wide readership."--Lieutenant General Dave R. Palmer, author of Summons of the Trumpet
