James K

Looking at our Military Leadership

by James K on Jan 16, 2014

If you are interested in the leadership situation with our top military commanders today, this is the book for you This is a no holds barred evaluation of our past and present military leaders. The generals, who oversee our fighting forces and how there has been a substantive change from the Second World War to our current situation. According to Ricks, today's military is led by entrenched bureaucrats controlled by their political masters in Washington. He provides ample backup for his beliefs in a very readable format. A hard book to put down.
