A former adviser to ex-Defense Secretary James Mattis has written a book about the "complicated relationship" between Mattis and President Donald Trump — including how Mattis worked to block some of Trump's proposals, NBC News reported.

The book by Mattis’ former communications director, retired Navy Cmdr. Giy “Bus” Snodgrass, is described as "an insider's sometimes shocking account of how Defense Secretary James Mattis led the U.S. military through global challenges while serving as a crucial check” on the Trump administration, according to a press release NBC News received ahead of the official distribution.

"Holding the Line: Inside the Pentagon With General Mattis ” is due for publication by Sentinel in October.

According to news release, the book is a "fly-on-the-wall view of Mattis" during national security events and crises, including "learning about major policy decision via Twitter, rather than from the White House" — and how Mattis "slow-rolled some of Trump's most controversial measures, with no intention of following through."

Snodgrass is finishing the book and plans to submit it to the Pentagon for review before publication, NBC News reported.
