Although central to the narrative is his focus on leadership, it is done in the context of the larger scene, bringing into focus the major historical events that were happening at the time. Embedded in his story are deeply personal accounts of his family experience, including the role of his wife Corinne, the trauma of the death of their son Andrew, and the impact of his handicapped brother David.

His assistance was outstanding at every stage of the process.
