Edward S. Miller, a Phi Beta Kappa graduate in economics at Syracuse University and the Harvard Advanced Management Program, served as chief financial officer of a major international mining corporation and the U.S. Synthetic Fuels Corporation. His interest in business planning led to the writing of War Plan Orange, winner of five distinguished history book awards. He lives in Washington, D.C.From Library Journal:
Prior to World War II, the United States's war plans were code-named by color. Japan was Orange and the United States was Blue. Miller (a retired business executive) spent over 15 years researching the plan that was used to defeat Japan. He states that the plan "was . . . history's most successful war plan . . . . The prewar plans of other great powers proved, by and large, to be costly failures." Miller also gives insights into the impact of the officers who hammered out War Plan Orange: the "realists" and "adventurists," or the "cautionaries" and "thrusters." This is an important book for anyone wishing to understand the methods of American war planning, and it is the only book on War Plan Orange. Miller's writing style and lucid explanations make the book suitable for most readers, even though it is clearly for scholars and specialists in the field. Recommended for most academic libraries and for public libraries where there is a strong interest in World War II in the Pacific.
