Author Andrew Marble

Andrew Marble joins us to discuss Boy on the Bridge, the first-ever biography of John Shalikashvili, one of the United States's greatest military leaders.  Shalikashvili and his family emigrated to the United States in 1952. He was drafted into the army in 1958 and rose steadily through the ranks. In 1993 Shalikashvili was tapped by President Bill Clinton to replace General Colin Powell as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, becoming the first immigrant, first draftee, and first Officer Candidate School graduate to hold the position.
