Resumen:

General Richard B. Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the four years following September 11, 2001, looks back over his career and provides a candid, revealing insider's view of the war on terror and proposing a bold new plan that will prepare America for the diverse national security challenges of the 21st century. Growing up in Kansas, Myers, a distinguished Air Force officer for more than forty years, learned early the value of steadfast integrity and selfless service. Here, he talks candidly about his career in the military, the unforgettable events of September 11, and the global war on terror. He outlines the mistakes made by the White House, Pentagon leadership, and the intelligence community. Myers believes that America has focused too narrowly on tactical battles, instead of on a long-range strategy that will overcome a global insurgency fueled by a struggle for control within Islam.--From publisher description.
