Reviews

"A thoughtful, comprehensive, and incisive look at modern warfare in its many dimensions. R. D. Hooker combines deep practical experience as a warfighter and policymaker with an extensive academic background to produce a rich and varied assessment of how and why we fight in the 21st century. A must-read for students and practitioners of national security alike."
--Admiral James Stavridis, U.S. Navy (Retired), former Commander, U.S. European Command, and Supreme Allied Commander Europe

"If you want to explore the character of modern warfare and critical issues of national security and strategy, read this book! BEYOND VOM KRIEGE is a masterful and engaging read that illustrates R. D. Hooker's decades of study of the art of war and his many years of service as a Soldier-Leader with experience in many of our nation's recent conflicts."
--General Curtis M. Scaparrotti, U.S. Army (Retired), former Commander, U.S. European Command, and Supreme Allied Commander Europe

"A wonderfully stimulating, thoughtful, and engrossing survey of recent wars, the context in which they were fought, and the leadership exercised by those who conducted them."
--General David Petraeus, U.S. Army (Ret.), former Director of the CIA, and former Commander of Coalition Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan and U.S. Central Command

"A keen observer of war and conflict, R. D. Hooker has accumulated a rich body of research and publication. Few writers can bring together this much professional and personal substance in one offering, but BEYOND VOM KRIEGE delivers. It is a must read for any serious student of war and the profession of arms."
--General John Allen, U.S. Marine Corps (Retired), former Commander of U.S. and Coalition forces in Afghanistan, and President, The Brookings Institution
