About the Author:

Colin Powell was born in New York City. He was a professional soldier for 35 years, during which time he won numerous US and foreign military decorations and rose to the rank of Four-star General. In December 2000, he was nominated by President Bush as Secretary of State, the first African-American to hold such high office. Joseph E. Persico is the author of biographies on Nelson Rockefeller and former CIA chief William J. Casey. His work Nuremberg: Infamy on Trial was hailed by Howard K. Smith as the 'best account' of the trial.

Review:

"A great American success story ... An endearing and well-written book" New York Times "Profound and moving ... must reading for anyone who wants to reaffirm his faith in the promise of America." Wall Street Journal
