KIRKUS REVIEW

Pertinent, persuasive, this army man's analysis of just what is wrong with the way the allies are fighting this war. His title thesis is just this, that the war must be taken to the enemy, that the perpetual defensive position of the allies leaves them limited strategic opportunities. He shows up the circumscribed strength of sea power today, points the lessons of Crete, Manila and Singapore. Emphasizes his claim that only in our ability to strike hard and strike soon lies the hope for victory. Realistic -- frightening -- convincing.
