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.

Larry Berman, the author of Perfect Spy, offers a fascinating, detailed look at an extraordinary man—recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom—an inspiring portrait of leadership that is essential in these troubled times.
