Lucid, thoughtful, and steeped in military and strategic history, My Share of the Task is not just the story of one man’s service; it is the story of the development of a new way of war. This book is not just for aficionados of military history or for students of American foreign policy; it’s for anyone who wants to understand the. My Share of the Task is an important, riveting, and instructive account of the triumphs and trials of America’s two longest wars.”. —TOM BROKAW, author of The Greatest Generation. “Written in the tradition of Ulysses S. Grant, My Share of the Task is a clear, compelling, self-critical, and utterly unpretentious memoir.
