They called themselves Sons of Liberty-a revolutionary conspiracy that intended to form a new confederacy in the American heartland-and put an end to the American Civil War. Backed by the South, the Sons launch guerilla attacks against Union troops. New York Times bestselling historian Thomas Fleming brings his extraordinary biographical talents to bear upon Benjamin Franklin, perhaps the least understood of America's revolutionary giants. For this reappraisal, Fleming concentrates on the mature Franklin, the man who lived nearly thirty years beyond the point where he ended his famous Autobiography.

Follows an entire generation of military officers and their wives, caught in an emotional crossfire of loyalty and violence, from occupied Germany and Japan in the 1950s to the tragedy of Vietnam
  • Thomas J. Fleming is a respected historian. What I liked best about the book was his discussion of the Army's role in both the Korea and Vietnam. His handling of these military conflicts -- especially the early years of the Vietnam War and the idealism of American servicemen -- gave me some useful background information. As someone who has experienced military life, I thought his descriptions of what was expected of the women in terms of service done gratis for the good of the military was accurate.

    I took off one star (and would have liked to have taken off another half-star) because I felt the author's manipulation of his female characters (spoiler alert: two of them in sexual affairs with a third woman's husband) was simply not credible. Military wives endure long separations and great anxiety for their husbands' safety, have sole responsibility for children and households, experience frequent long-distance moves, and often are called upon to care for other military families. Fleming has his female characters behave in ways that are not consonant with any conduct I witnessed in over two decades of military life. To denigrate military wives by portraying them as unstable and unfaithful is simply not acceptable.

  • I avidly read every word in this exciting, informative, interesting book. The larger than life characters seem so real. I was a military wife for many years, and although I was an enlisted wife, and this book is about officers' wives, I can vouch for its authenticity. The book is astonishing in its depiction of raw ambition in some of the military officers in the book who were on their way to getting their generals' stars, contrasted with the idealism and willingness to sacrifice of some of the others. It is also heart-breaking in its look at four star-crossed couples. This book is a keeper and I am sure to read it again.

  • As a retired officer having served mostly in the same period, I found his understanding of military etiquette, honors, and responsibilities of leadership to be outstanding. He knew the Long Grey Line and career issues affecting family and home life.

  • Excellent read! Fleming does not disappoint. This book should be required reading for any woman marrying an officer in the military!

  • Love this book. Read it when it first came out in the 80's I believe. Easy to get involved in the lives of these officers' wives and to see how things have changed over time. Going through wars and the complexity of the army life.

  • Excellent

  • Wonderful T Fleming novel. Please add to Kindle - so many others of his already there, why not this one, too?

  • A grand story of West Pointers and their wives from the Korean War through Viet Nam. Great characters
