2003 VERY GOOD HARDCOVER IN VG DUST JACKET [PREIST, DANA] WAGING WAR AND KEEPING PEACE WITH AMERICA'S MILITARY

More Description from Internet Sources--

Walk with America's generals, grunts, and Green Berets through the maze of unconventional wars and unsettled peace. Four-star Generals who lead the military during wartime reign like proconsuls abroad in peace-time. Secretive Green Berets trained to hunt down terrorists are assigned to seduce tuthless authoritarian regimes. Pimply young soldiers taught to seize airstrips instead play mayor, detective, and social worker in a gung-ho but ill-fated attempt to rebuild a nation after the fighting stops. The Mission is a boots-on-the-ground account of America's growing dependence on our military to manage world affairs, describing a clash of culture and purpose through the eyes of soldiers and officers themselves. With unparalleled access to all levels of the military, Dana Priest traveled to eighteen countries--including Afghanistan. Uzbekistan, Colombia, Kosovo, Indonesia, and Nigeria--talking to generals, admirals, Special Forces A-teams, and infantry troops. Blending Ernie Pyle's worm's-eye view with David Halberstam's altitude, this book documents a historic and thought-provoking trend, one made even more significant in the aftermath of September II as the country turns to its warriors to solve the complex international challenges ahead.
