True Faith and Allegiance

Alberto R. Gonzales gives us the "behind the curtain" peek into the West Wing as a former U.S. Attorney General and Counsel to President George W. Bush.

The book is long, but it helps to understand the context of some of the decisions President Bush faced.  Gonzales gives a lot of the back story and the legal ramifications for the decisions the President had to make.  No decision was ever easy when you are leading a free country.

For those who lived through the Bush administration, it was more like current events not history; however it is fascinating to look at the events through the lens of history.  As we lived through 9/11 and into the 21st century, current events became historic events.  Gonzales takes us through the events, the decisions, the struggle, and the resulting consequences.  All was done with the best interest of the country at heart.

Thomas Nelson provided me a free copy of this book in exchange for this review which I freely give.
