“Zumwalt was an iconic figure for generations of sailors who served under his command or who were motivated by his example. His dedication to his country and the US Navy was a model for those who want to serve.”
— Adm. Mike Mullen, former 17th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
“An engaging and highly readable portrait of one of the Navy’s truly transformative figures and arguably the most innovative and controversial CNOs of the Cold War era.”
— Ronald H. Spector, professor of history and international affairs, The George Washington University
Zumwalt is a compelling portrait of the controversial military man who is widely regarded as the founder of the modern U.S. Navy, Admiral Elmo Russell “Bud” Zumwalt. Chief of Naval Operations during the decades-long Cold War crisis, Zumwalt implemented major strategic innovations that endure to this day, especially in his campaign against racism and sexism throughout the fleet. Larry Berman, the author of Perfect Spy, offers a fascinating, detailed look at an extraordinary man—winner of the Presidential Medal of Freedom—an inspiring portrait of leadership that is essential in these troubled times.
Larry Berman is the author of Planning a Tragedy; Lyndon Johnson’s War; No Peace, No Honor; and Perfect Spy. He is professor emeritus at the University of California, Davis, and founding dean of the Honors College at Georgia State University in Atlanta.
