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.

CIA CONSPIRACY THEORY: ALEXANDER HAIG

"Teaming up with Kissinger to administer the coup de grace to Nixon was another Rockefeller man, General Alexander Haig.

Haig is an intriguing case. Just as other associates connected with Kissinger jumped from virtual obscurity into key positions of influence (and as Kissinger himself had come out of nowhere into the second-most powerful position in the Western world), Haig's meteoric career is as intimately linked to Henry the K as the latter's is to the Rockefellers.

Haig, a colonel when he joined Kissinger's staff in 1969, had been jumped to the rank of four-star general in four short years -- skipping the third star completely. For a man with an absolutely undistinguished military record, this catapulting over 240 other general officers was most impressive indeed.

In the closing days of the Nixon Era, it was Haig who became more and more the acting President -- and it happens that it was Alexander Haig who controlled the vault where the Watergate tapes were kept. Blabbermouth Butterfield, who tipped off the Watergate Committee to the existence of the damning tapes, was a former colleague of Haig. "
