Boy on the Bridge: The Story of John Shalikashvili’s American Success

By Dr. Andrew Marble


Synopsis

How in the heck did a European prince-turned-stateless-penniless-WWII refugee become America’s highest-ranking general?

This question drives BOY ON THE BRIDGE, the first-ever biography of John Shalikashvili, chairman of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff (1993-97).

No boring military biography, it’s instead lively and nuanced character study. Check out the book trailer to meet the five spectacular people — a prince, three countesses, and a brassy teenage girl from the mid-west–who played a huge role in creating a very nontraditional national security leader.

How so? Gen. Colin Powell said of his successor: “He’s a quiet, decent man and a very hard worker. There is a mistaken notion that you have to have Pattonesque qualities to be a great general. You don’t need to rant and rave or be an arrogant jerk to be successful. Shali showed that.”
