Publisher: University Press of the Pacific

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback

Description:

Paperback. 88 pages. Dimensions: 11.0in. x 8.3in. x 0.2in.The facts of Dwight D. Eisenhowers military career are well-known. This does not mean, however, that there is nothing to be gained from a careful examination of his experience. Few if any American officers performed a wider array of strategic functions - he was a staff planner in the War Department, wartime commander of a massive coalition force, peacetime Chief of Staff, and Supreme Allied Commander in Europe. Eisenhower was directly involved in a number of major transitions including the building of the wartime American Army, its demobilization following the war, and the resuscitation of American military strength during the initial years of the cold war. This means that Eisenhowers career can provide important lessons on how a coherent strategy should and should not be built during times of strategic transition. That is what this monograph begins to do. It is not intended to be a biography in the usual sense and thus offers no new facts or insights into Eisenhowers life. Instead it uses that life as a backdrop for exploring the broader essence of strategic coherence and draws lessons from Eisenhowers career that can help guide the strategic transition which the U. S. military now faces. WILLIAM A. STOFFT Major General, U. S. Army Commandant This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.

Synopsis: The facts of Dwight D. Eisenhower's military career are well-known. This does not mean, however, that there is nothing to be gained from a careful examination of his experience. Few if any American officers performed a wider array of strategic functions - he was a staff planner in the War Department, wartime commander of a massive coalition force, peacetime Chief of Staff, and Supreme Allied Commander in Europe. Eisenhower was directly involved in a number of major transitions including the building of the wartime American Army, its demobilization following the war, and the resuscitation of American military strength during the initial years of the cold war. This means that Eisenhower's career can provide important lessons on how a coherent strategy should and should not be built during times of strategic transition. That is what this monograph begins to do. It is not intended to be a biography in the usual sense and thus offers no new facts or insights into Eisenhower's life.
