Mattis’ New Book – September 3
General Jim Mattis is beginning to speak. His book, “Call Sign Chaos: Learning to Lead,” is published September 3, 2019. In an essay in the Wall Street Journal on Wednesday (Aug. 28), he outlined his concern with the country’s political polarization and its international go-it-alone approach, especially related to maintaining allies. Along with his resignation letter, the two documents serve as a clear rebuke to President Trump and his governing philosophy and style, especially as applied to his foreign policy. The book tour will be as interesting as the book.
