Prescott Bush is the only person in U.S. history to be father of a U.S.President, grandfather of a U.S. President, and grandfather of a state governor.Duty, Honor, Country is more than a biography of the U.S. Senator fromConnecticut, although it is that. It looks at the principles that Prescott Bushpassed on like family heirlooms to his five children, including George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States: discipline, duty, ethics,commitment, courage, honor, honesty, loyalty, and responsibility. And it looksat the ways the Bush family legacy has made Prescott Bush, former President George Bush, George W. Bush, and Jeb Bush give themselves to public service."My father believed in the concept of noblesse oblige," said former President George Bush. "You made your money and you had a duty to serve thecommunity or your country."

Written with the encouragement and enthusiasm of former President Bush, thebook is a readable story of noblesse oblige in action, from the timePrescott Bush served in town government in Greenwich, Connecticut, to his careeras a U.S. Senator from Connecticut, to his role in passing far-reachinglegislation in the Eisenhower years. It also deals honestly with Prescott Bush's alleged business relationships with Nazi industrialists and other accusations. Half of the book also shows how the commitment to public service was lived outin the lives of Prescott's children and grandchildren, focusing on his sonGeorge H.W. Bush and his grandsons George W. Bush and Jeb Bush.

"While there is a natural American enchantment with history asnostalgia," says the author, both Georges and Jeb resist - even detest -the words dynasty and legacy. 'Dynasty means something inherited,'said President George W. 'We inherited a good name, but you don't inherit avote.'"

Prescott Bush was a just a man, but he was a man who did a lot of very bad things. He administered finances for European shell corporations of the Third Reich before and during the war. His company was seized in 1942 under the trading with the enemy act. He helped Hitler. It's as simple as that.
This man profited from war and the death of other people's children.
Now his son, George HW Bush, is working for defense industry holding company, The Carlyle Group, who reports some of its highest profits ever. His Grandson has overseen the awarding of the largest no bid, no limit contracts in the history of the U.S. handed out to his Vice President's company (excuse me, Mr. Cheney still has options and receives "deferred retirement" checks from Halliburton every year). GW Bush's ratings were at their all time high when he declared war (for those of you who thought the Constitution gave that power to congress, they abdicated over a year ago)on Iraq, allowing him to push through another scurrilous tax cut for himself and his biggest contributors- once again profiting from the death of other people's children.
The seeds, in this case, have not fallen very far from the tree...

This book reads very well. It took me two days to shoot through it casually. There are some mistakes, however, mostly dealing with dates of elections and positions held by officials at the time. As I have seen from others, the truth can be a little open to interpretation. But if you are above the politics and the petty bickering, this can be a very good read for someone who is interested in learning more about the origins of the Bush family.

This excellent book gives an insight into the values instilled by Prescott Bush,carried forth by President George H.W.Bush and now being practiced by President George W. Bush.These men and their families know what it means to practice honor,integrity,and duty to their country.The people of the US,who gave them the honor to serve,see the strength of duty and conviction in their actions,and this is what they see in President George W. Bush and don't fall for the picture portrayed by the elite left wing media and establishment.There is no doubt that the Bushes believe it is a great honor to serve their country and they will do everything possible to ensure that they will do it to the best of their ability.Leadership and Statesmanship is one thing while politics is another matter.The Bushes are able to handle both and do it without being mean-spirited or nasty;even in times when things don't always go the way they wish.To them, a public office is a sacred trust and they will do everything in their power to insure that the office gets the respect it deserves.Whether or not you agree with President Bush on all issues,one certainly knows where he stands .He has proven to be a man of his word,will give it his best and along the way will do nothing to disgrace the office he has been elected to hold.

There are a couple of thoughts the Bushes live by and everyone can benefit from them;regardless of their Faith or Politics:

"Doing what is right is what is more important than being

popular."

"Principles matter a lot more than opinion polls."

Keeping this in mind one can see The President lives by his convictions;and this is the foundation of greatness.This applies just as much to the cop on the beat,the teacher in the school,the coach on the sand lot and The President of the United States of America.It is what George W.Bush believes,practices and will be his legacy.
