Reviewed by Michael Hughes
This is an insightful, must-read book for those who care about the future of the U.S. military---or, more broadly, anyone who cares about the future security of the United States. As a former Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Bill Owens certainly has the credentials to assess the current state of the military. In Lifting the Fog of War, he and co-author Edward Offley argue forcefully and eloquently that "the U.S. Military is in serious trouble today."
