Pach has written the definitive work on the formative years of the U.S. military assistance program. He emphasizes in his impressively and extensively documented analysis the prominence of political and psychological aims over military objectives in U.S. military assistance policy, the bureaucratic battles that pitted the War and Navy Departments against the State Department in shaping the country's military assistance program, and 'the confusion and uncertainty' that characterized most official thinking about military assistance during the early years of the program.--Choice
An excellent book on the development of the United States's Military Assistance Program between 1945 and 1950. The subject is important, the scholarship is exhaustive, the exposition is lucid, and the argument is persuasive.--Burton Kaufman, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State Univesity
