WITHOUT HESITATION The Odyssey of an American Warrior

by | Read by Hugh Shelton

Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Abridged • © 2010

This memoir by Hugh Shelton, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1997-2001, covers the key characters and personalities he worked with on the battlefield and behind the scenes at the Pentagon and the White House. With a soothing yet commanding North Carolina accent, the author describes his recovery from a near-death injury that doctors said would paralyze him for life. Interspersed with the story of his recovery are his incredible memories of his 38-year career in the Army, which took him from a small farming community to the jungles of Vietnam, then to the inner sanctum of American military and political power as a general, and then to the position of chairman of the Joint Chiefs during 9/11. This life-affirming audio is worth a listen. B.C.E. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2011]
