Excellent Insight

The podcast from hosted from General H.R. McMaster is just fantastic. It is so fun to hear about how a world class strategist thinks about global goings-on. Thanks for a fantastic podcast General and Hoover! It is nice to bring a specialist view to the general public, I couldn’t get this insight almost anywhere else.

A military-historical strategist and tactician of the highest order. Neither pessimist nor optimist, General McMaster is a hopeful patriot. His podcasts provide clear analysis.
