Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Perry, the editor of Veteran magazine, provides another perspective on the events of the Cold War. Focusing on the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Perry reveals the cracks and fissures between America's top level military leadership and the civilian political leaders and strategists. Perry not only allows us to see the policy-making process through a new window but raises the classic question of civilian control of the military in terms of taking military advice and overriding military decisions. Perry's book, based on exhaustive research, is careful, balanced, and most interesting to those concerned that the military has too little power in policy-making, rather than too much. Writing on the military often focuses on strategy, force structure, and technology; this book is a welcome antidote, as it sheds light on the continuing political struggle over the voice of the Joint Chiefs. Of great value to readers, whether they are armchair strategists or walk the corridors of power.
