Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I do not want to comment on this book in depth because Max Manwaring is a personal friend. I do however believe that it is fair to note that this book recently won the prestigious Madigan Award for best book published (over a one year span) by a member of U.S Army War College faculty. There was a great deal of competition for this award (I was part of it.) and Dr. Manwaring's work, as usual, rose to the top. W. Andrew Terrill, Ph.D.
