Item Description...
Throughout American history, presidents have faced difficult choices--decisions that sometimes have had grave political and personal consequences. Will leadership prevail? Or will the office cede power to popular opinion? At these critical times, many of our presidents have chosen a path of genuine courage. They stood up for what they believed was right for the country and displayed tremendous character, which made them leaders of men.
Wallace has chosen nearly twenty notable acts of presidential courage in our nation's history, including: George Washington and the Whiskey Rebellion, Theodore Roosevelt and the Russo-Japanese War, Harry Truman and the Berlin Airlift and George W. Bushand the Iraqi war.
How and why did these men make these choices? What experiences from their civilian lives came to bear on their decisions? What forces shaped them? Who influenced them? What or who gave them their inner fortitude?
Wallace brings out the humanity of these power brokers and lets their personal histories shine through. The result is a completely involving and tremendously informative look at the presidents who've made defining choices for our nation in times of national uncertainty.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Uninformed  Aug 30, 2008
This guy is the most uninformed moron on the planet. I didn't know intellectual standards could be brought to a new low like this book. You might as well read L Ron Hubbard's pulp fiction books for a comparable measure of factuality. Chris Wallace is a paranoid weirdo who is eternally vigilant lest his comfortable little view of the world is upset. And he is quick to conform to majority opinion. Do you want to your understanding of historical events from a sissy like that?
Excellent book for intro to Presidential history  Feb 5, 2008
This book is excellent for someone like me who's just getting into Presidential and U.S. history. Wallace does a great job of blending in historical background of what was going on in the country and events surrounding each President's act of courage, and also background on each President himself. I would very much recommend this book as a starting block for anyone who is interested in studying Presidential history.

As for everyone giving the book 1-star reviews, those reviews are either based on a) Wallace's personal character, which has nothing to do with whether this is a good book or not, or b) the book has a chapter on President Bush. Unlike these people claim, this book isn't a love-fest for Bush, nor is it trying to elevate Bush to the level of Washington and Lincoln.

On the intro chapter, page 10, Wallace writes:

"I wanted to look at those instances when a President did the unpopular thing and saw it through because he believed it was the right thing to do."

And page 12:

"One may or may not agree with the presidential decisions depicted in this book, but those decisions, undeniably, were brave."

The point of this book isn't to show how wonderful each President is, it's to simply show each President's courage under fire, regardless of whether people agree with their decisions or not.
Why oh why did he include Bush?!  Jul 24, 2007
This book is a *very* light read (not intended for history buffs) on various US Presidents, and situations they had to deal with, from George Washington and the Whiskey Rebellion, to, regrettably, G.W. Bush and 9/11. If you put aside the idiocy of including Bush (which many reviewers here can't), then this is an enjoyable, interesting, light read.
Short, fair, fresh  Jan 13, 2007
"The Presidency is not and exercise in intellect or ideology. It is a test of will and purpose."

Wallace covers 16 Republican and Democrat Presidents who led our nation through crisis and how each performed. Important history lesson; some unexpected. His lead-in to each chapter is good; Chris is fair, with a new and fresh look. Letters and addresses from each President are found at the end of each chapter. Good bibliography

Through attacks from factions and the people each President stood up to what he felt was right. The cold war--how close we came to liftoff--we may be able to thank Starislav Petrov for stopping it. Character and courage yes, the law and what was to be upheld will always be in question.

After turning the final page, I discover: "the people" were an intrinsic part of the government--what happened, where did our Republic go? What happened to the Democrat party of Kennedy and prior?

"A mockingbird imitates robins, jays, redbirds, crows, hawks--but has no individual note of its own. A lot of people like that." ----Harry Truman

Wish you well
Obvious ploy to elevate Bush  Apr 4, 2006
What Andreya Dela Cruz doesn't seem to quite fathom is that George W. Bush doesn't belong in this book in the first place. If one is to write about about exceptional presidents who displayed remarkable courage, Bush 43 would not even rank within the top 40. The fact that he is included at all is obvious political spin on the part of Wallace. Bush is not, and will never be, in the same caliber of FDR, Kennedy, and Lincoln. Period, end of discussion.
