A very informative history within a very good novel

James A. Michener is a superb writer of history. After extensive research, he incorporates interesting and informative historical facts into a very readable work of fiction. His Hawaii and his Source are great examples. The first recalls the history of Hawaii and the second of Israel. This volume tells about eight fictional generations of American heroes, men and women, who helped mold the United States from its beginning until the time of the Iran Contra controversy.

A well decorated soldier, the scion of a marvelous group of ancestors, is accused by the US Congress for misbehavior regarding Iran. His friend, a lawyer, plans to defend him in several ways, including putting his family's history, the history of the United States, before Congress.

But there is a surprising ending brought about by a man from another country.
