Format: Hardcover
Gansler's work is a sobering call to civilian and defense leaders about the mounting challenges facing the US defense industry. With the current debate over sequestration, his analysis and call to action are even more timely. While this book is certainly not a quick ready, it will reward the persistent reader with a substantive view of the problems and the possible solutions facing today's defense industry. My review of the work in the Sept/Oct edition of Military Review provides a more detailed review of this valuable work.
