I came to read about the only six star general in US history and learn about the Missourah warrior whom chased Pancho Villa and led the troops in WWI. So I got frustrated when the narrative rambled on and on and on about his wife and children. I get it, he loves his wife and kids. It's no surprise I'm kind of an insensitive moron; just ask my ask ex wives, children or friends. But I really felt particularly rakish when I was about to quit this book until I read his entire family save for one son were all killed in a fire. Then I stayed to read about the human behind the soldier. Even so it is my humble opinion that Gene Smith along with many other historians and novelists alike could use a good editor. Sometimes less really is more.
