Naval War College Review


Henry Bartlett


This excellent book documents the mil- itary and postmilitary career of General Tony Zinni, USMC (Ret.). It should ap- peal to any reader interested in the U.S. military, the U.S. Marine Corps, and national security affairs. The book follows an engaging and mixed style. Clancy and Koltz use short biographical sections to introduce phases of General Zinni’s career. At the end of each phase, Zinni’s own words (in italics) pick up the action. One has the sense of being right there with the general, sharing his experiences and watching him develop into an excep- tional military role model and leader.
