Publishers Rush to Release Books About Fallen Generals

In the wake of the scandal around David Petraeus and his “All In” biographer, Paula Broadwell, The Atlantic reports that Penguin moving up its publishing schedule for Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s memoir, “My Share of the Task,” and Simon & Schuster has moved up the release date of “The Insurgents: David Petraeus and the Plot to Change the American Way of War.”

It will be interesting to see if either publisher decides to make ebook versions available earlier, and when/if “All In” will be updated to reflect the scandal it’s become synonymous with.
