display_descriptionProfiles four influential army generals--John Abizaid, George Casey, Peter Chiarelli, and David Petraeus--documenting their insights into the Middle East and military strategy and the personal factors that shaped their careers. Analyzing the careers of an elite quartet--General John Abizaid, General George Casey Jr., General Peter Chiarelli, and General David Petraeus, Jaffe shows how the most powerful military force in the world entered a major war unprepared, and how the Army, drawing on this reservoir of talent that few thought it possessed, saved itself from crushing defeat against a ruthless, low-tech foe.
