A book about Gen. Shali

The first biography on four-star General John Shalikashvili has been released by the University Press of Kentucky. Boy on the Bridge is a life story of a man who considered himself to be the son of two countries – the United States and Georgia – both proudly having embraced him while alive and respecting his memory in the afterlife.
