by | Read by Tommy R. Franks

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Retired General Tommy Franks, architect of the spring 2003 campaign in Iraq, as well as the fall 2001 campaign in Afghanistan, recaps his life. He is straightforward in telling his life's odyssey from humble beginnings in Oklahoma and Texas, through his first (failed) attempt at college, eventual enlistment in the Army, and his experiences with officer candidate's school, Vietnam, marriage, and, finally, the Iraq campaign. The author's comments and observations give great insight into the campaign of 2003 and the present situation in Iraq. While Franks does not endorse every action of the Bush administration regarding the war on terrorism, the general appears to be in agreement with the administration's broad policy direction. Though not a polished reader, he speaks well and exudes comfort in telling his story of a Texas boy done good. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 05]
