Publishers Weekly

A historian at the Army Center for Military History, Spector concentrates on the problem of command in the Southern Pacific theaters, the rivalries between the various U.S. armed services and the problem of allocating resources. PW praised his ability to ``show how even the most efficiently run campaigns unfold against a background of violent dispute.'' November
