Summary
An uncensored account of General Schwartz's term as the wartime US Air Force Chief of Staff under presidents Bush and Obama.The General's dysfunctional home life drove him to apply to the Air Force Academy over forty years ago, where he was provided with a new family and sense of worth he had never earned from his own father. This purpose has driven the General throughout his remarkable career, taking him to Alaska, the Pentagon, and Germany; to Florida during Hurricane Opal, and has also allowed him to work alongside Presidents Bush and Obama and Secretaries of Defense Don Rumsfeld, Bob Gates and Leon Panetta.Journey is a book about leadership. It is packed with the General's lessons from life in the military: breaking the mold, flying uncharted airspace, battles--from Iraq to the Pentagon, Afghanistan to Congress. It's about pushing limits in an era of diminishing budgets and fewer resources to fuel the furnace of innovation. He chronicles the phenomenal story of the evolution of the US special operations, such as what was achieved when taking down Bin Laden. The General discusses the controversial new technologies that have been allowing America to build new capabilities in remote aircraft and cyber warfare. Many believe General Schwartz's greatest legacy will be the dramatic acceleration of the "drone" program. He is a staunch advocate for it and this book will explain why
