X, [2], 304 pages, cloth, DJ, very good. Stated first edition. From the Foreign Affairs issue of October 1958: "The author, who retired suddenly from the Army last March, here presents his well-argued, and strongly felt, criticism of recent military and strategic policies. Believing that we have slipped into a disadvantage vis--vis the Russians, he is particularly critical of the cumbersome pace of the Department of Defense; the division of the services, especially the separating of air and land power; and the failure, as he sees it, to develop a more flexible military establishment to handle the various kinds of warfare that we may encounter." ; 8.40 X 5.80 X 1.20 inches; 305 pages
