Gen. Andrew J. Goodpaster was one of the leading soldier-scholars of his time. He stood as a key figure among the dominant American military and political personalities during the Cold War. Goodpaster served Gen. Dwight Eisenhower in establishing the international military component of NATO and then served as Staff Secretary and Defense Liaison Officer in the Eisenhower White House. He achieved the highest international military command assignment possible when, after serving in Vietnam as Deputy Commander, he was appointed NATO's Supreme Allied Commander, Europe. He was called out of retirement to restore the integrity of West Point after a major ethical crisis. Upon his final retirement and for over a quarter-century thereafter, he was actively involved in both the formal and informal world of Washington policy-making, making his mark repeatedly as a respected participant.

About the Author:

Robert S. Jordan has doctorates from both Princeton and Oxford Universities, where he was a member of St. Antony's College. He served as Director of Research for the United Nations Institute for Training and Research. He was Distinguished Professor and Fleet Professor for the U.S. Naval War College and lectured at the Army and Air War Colleges, along with the former British Imperial Defence College. He has published widely on Cold War alliance policy, coalition maritime affairs, international administration and military biography and lives in Woodbridge, VA.

Review:

"This book should be read closely by military professionals who want to understand the true complexities of the civil-military relationship at the highest levels."--Military Review



"Many military personnel have gone on to serve with great distinction as politicians and policy-makers. This tradition is especially well established in the US, where a military background is beneficial to those running for office and excellent preparation for working in the policy arena. It is, however, much more unusual to find a military man or woman who has been so thoroughly involved in policy and politics whilst still in uniform. Andrew J. Goodpaster was such an individual: his life and work, described and analysed in a new biography by Robert S. Jordan, are noteworthy because of his role in the early stages of the Cold War and for the volume's analysis of a military man in a policy setting. Jordan draws on an impressive array of research, ranging from papers scattered in various presidential libraries across the US to interviews with Goodpaster's contemporaries, some of which are included in the book as highly readable appendices."--RUSI Journal
