Join the Clements Center for History, Strategy & Statecraft and the Strauss Center for International Security and Law for a talk by Tom Ricks of the Washington Post on his book "The Generals: American Military Command from WWII to Today."
Ricks has made a close study of America’s military leaders for three decades, and in "The Generals" he chronicles the widening gulf between performance and accountability among the top brass of the U.S. military.
Ricks is The Washington Post’s special military correspondent and a member of two Pulitzer Prize–winning teams for national reporting. In addition, he is a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security and a contributing editor at Foreign Policy magazine. In addition to "The Generals," he is the author of "The Gamble," "Fiasco," "Making the Corps" and "A Soldier’s Duty."
