Reviews

Everything an important book should be. It is lean yet detailed, dramatic yet without hyperbole, and the lesson it teaches is something the public and the entire Washington policy community should internalize: that the projection of military power, done responsibly, leads to the projection of a nation's values. And when it comes to military power, the greatest weapon the United States had during the Cold War and today is its Navy.--Robert D. Kaplan, author of The Revenge of Geography and The Return of Marco Polo's World
Lehman's book is...a validation of the axiom that if you want peace, prepare for war.--George Will
This book is solid history of a resurgent Navy...Lehman's words are essential to understanding the Navy's role and performance during the Cold War and its contribution to the downfall of the Soviet Union.
