Summary
Focusing on 12 wartime episodes during major conflicts, this book examines the relationship between a president and his military commanders and how it affects the making of national security policy and military strategy. The book outlines the roles and responsibilities of the American president and military leaders and describes how the constantly changing relationships between civil and military leaders have determined policy and strategy in various periods of wartime throughout the history of the US.
