I have not finished reading the book yet, but I found it difficult to put it down. The first part of the book describes his family and educational background, and offers insights to the American society in those days. Thanks to his position as a staff member of General MacArthur's team, his recount of the Korean War struck me as credible and insightful. The chapter on his trip to China is not as interesting as expected, which may be attributed to the fact that others like Nixon and Kissinger cover the subject in detail.

Alexander M. Haig is one of our nation's great unsung heroes. In "Inner Circles" his astute observations from the Korean War on are detailed and should serve as a guide for our leaders of today and tomorrow. Haig reminds us that unacknowledged and unaddressed mistakes from the past may well lead to future debacles. Haig believed in learning from the past.

"Inner Circles" is a great read because of the author's heartfelt commitment to America's mission and his inherent belief in our nation's ability to persevere. He did his homework by living his homework and here is the evidence.

This is a very good accounting of America's foreign and Washington-centric policies from the 50's to 90's.

Great review of General Haig's career in the Army and Richard Nixon days. Most impressed with his loyalty to his country and his bosses. Long Book but interesting read. You'll need a dictionary for a few words but an increased vocabulary will not be the only thing you learn! Reminded me of my Army days with Haig wearing the OD green cotton fatigues. Sharp guy.
