This is an auction for A SOLDIER'S WAY: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY, by Colin Powell, with Joseph E Persico.

From Wikipedia:

"Colin Luther Powell is an American statesman and a retired four-star general in the United States Army. He was the 65th United States Secretary of State (2001-2005), serving under President George W. Bush. He was the first African American appointed to that position. During his military career, Powell also served as National Security Advisor (1987-1989), as Commander-in-Chief, U.S. Army Forces Command (1989) and as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (1989-1993), holding the latter position during the Gulf War. He was the first, and so far the only, African American to serve on the Joint Chiefs of Staff . . . "

Amazon.com review:

"FIVE STARS!!! I really like this book. I re-read bits of it frequently. The descriptions of the early years of the Vietnam war are particularly immediate and atmospheric. It also opens a window on how the Pentagon and the U.S. Army work as Powell's career criss-crosses between them. The book as a whole tells of a great, action packed life and career with wit and easy grace - probably just like General Powell in person. No wonder he is one of the most respected Americans of modern times. He battled from humble beginnings and against thoughtless racism to reach the very top of America's armed forces as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Before that he had been the last of President Reagan's National Security Advisors."
