Sheds light on civil-military relations at the highest level during the Cold War and its immediate aftermath and provides valuable insight into the interaction of individuals, circumstances, and law, which produced the chairmanship as we know it today. Illustrated with formal color portraits and informal photographs of each Chairman during that period." -- Foreword.
