This book brings together three monographs on grand strategy, global reality, and re-inventing the U.S. Army as well as the rest of the Department of Defense — and in passing addressing needed changes in diplomacy, development, and intelligence, all of which are just as broken as the military.
The U.S. military today is 50% waste, committing crimes against humanity in over 100 countries — alongside CIA drone assassination operations — and generally not able to win a war nor maintain a peace. Our generals and admirals are not being held accountable for telling the truth — they are themselves sadly divorced from reality and unable to appreciate the truth even when it is presented to them.
It is significant that this work was funded by the U.S. Army Strategic Studies Institute (SSI), paid for, and immediately censored. In a purge that reminds one of Stalinist air brushiing of those out of favor from photographs, everything the author ever wrote for SSI in the past twenty years has been purged from its webiste. Lacking today at SSI are three essential qualities needed by the US Army: intelligence, integrity, and imagination.
