The term "engineer" is not used literally, but refers to grand strategic planning. This book will disappoint someone looking for details of engineering solutions to wartime problems, although some inventions are cited as decisive. There is an attempt to link Atlantic theater and Pacific theater strategies. But it's hard to differentiate linkage from coincidence and the overall rhythm of war at global scale. Overall, the book is not worth the time.
