From the Publisher:
From the former secretary of defense, a strikingly candid, vivid account of serving Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

When Robert M. Gates received a call from the White House, he thought he?d long left Washington politics behind: After working for six presidents in both the CIA and the National Security Council, he was happily serving as president of Texas A&M University. But when he was asked to help a nation mired in two wars and to aid the troops doing the fighting, he answered what he felt was the call of duty.

Praise

"Robert M. Gates gives us a forthright, impassioned, sometimes conflicted account of his four and a half years as defense secretary in his fascinating new memoir DUTY, a book that is highly revealing about decision making in both the Obama and Bush White Houses." - Michiko Kakutani 01/09/2014

"[A] richly textured memoir....[H]hs call for restoring "civility and mutual respect" is a cry from the heart." 01/13/23014
