Publisher's Summary

The son of Jamaican immigrants, a mischievous child, and an average student, Colin Powell has become one of the most influential Americans. In this dramatic series of interviews, General Powell describes his ascent from the ROTC to four-star general and eventually to chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and mastermind of Desert Storm. He discusses his assignments in Germany, Korea, and Vietnam, his role in the Carter, Reagan, and Bush administrations, and his eyewitness accounts of Desert Storm, the invasion of Panama, and the Iran-Contra scandal.
These interviews reveal the essence of an emerging statesman and demonstrate why so many people have seen Colin Powell as a moral and human exemplar of the American dream and traditional values.
