Our Man
Our Man Richard Holbrooke and the End of the American Century By Packer, George Book - 2019

A novelistic portrait of one America's most ambitious, relentless diplomats -- a larger-than-life character at the very center of some of post-WII America's greatest foreign policy quagmires (Vietnam, Bosnia, Afghanistan). Hardly a hagiography, Packer renders Holbrooke's life and character in its full unvarnished complexity. The section on the Balkan Wars alone is absolutely riveting.
