"One of the real pleasures of Jonathan W. Jordan's Brothers, Rivals, Victors is reading about [Patton, ] Bad Boy of the American military . . . What Jordan gives us is the war as Eisenhower, Bradley and Patton saw it . . . Anybody who believes that generals are just, rational men, imbued with a soldierly feeling of comradeship toward one another and an ingrained respect for their political superiors, will be shocked by this book."--Michael Korda, The New York Times Book Review "Jonathan W. Jordan has pulled off a mission impossible: He has produced a groundbreaking study that transforms our understanding of [Eisenhower, Patton, and Bradley] . . . This book should be required reading at West Point and all other military academies. It is beautifully written and a classic work of popular biography and military history for the general reader."--Martin Sieff, The Washington Times "Ably marshalling a considerable amount of research, Jordan fashions a truly compelling narrative of three outsized American military figures . . . A masterly, exciting study of character and tactics in World War II."--Kirkus (starred review) "[Jordan's] humane, closely researched and well-written Brothers, Rivals, Victors vividly conveys the mental and physical demands of high command."--Michael Burleigh, The Wall Street Journal "Jonathan W. Jordan's Brothers, Rivals, Victors is a landmark publication in the history of the Second World War. Anchored by a breathtaking amount of new research, Jordan explains the strange alchemy that existed between Eisenhower, Patton, and Bradley as they struggled to defeat Nazism. Jordan has written a real historical tour de force. Highly recommended!"--Douglas Brinkley, Professor of History at Rice University and New York Times bestselling author of The Boys of Pointe du Hoc For American Warlords (2015):
"A page-turning chronicle of World War II. . . . Throughout, the author provides astute and clever portrayals of the leaders, including Churchill's pretense to his ancestor's abilities, Stalin's displays of compassion, and FDR's meddling in naval projects . . . Readers will enjoy the intrigue, back-stabbing, action, and diplomacy in this well-written book."--Kirkus (starred review) "Mr. Jordan has done an admirable job of making these men come alive. He uses their own words to weave a good tale."--Walter R. Borneman, The Wall Street Journal "[A] triumph of meticulous scholarship and keen insight propelled by a marvelously written narrative . . . Jordan's American Warlords accomplishes for FDR and World War II what Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals achieved for Lincoln and the Civil War."--Armchair General Magazine "An incredibly intimate account of the four men who led the nation to victory in the Second World War . . . Superbly written, well researched, and highly interesting, American Warlords is in a class by itself."--Jean Edward Smith, Pulitzer Prize Finalist, Winner of the Francis Parkman Prize, and New York Times Bestselling Author of FDR and Eisenhower in War and Peace
