"Citino is insightful, provocative, and unstinting in his analysis of doctrine. . . . Soldiers who take the time to read Robert Citino's book carefully will find themselves sometimes irritated, sometimes embarrassed as they recall their own shortcomings, but always stimulated by Citino's fast-paced narrative and logical argument."--Parameters
"A superlative and important book, well written, exhaustively researched, and exquisitely balanced. The author is a skilled military historian who brilliantly examines the operational art from its conceptual beginnings through its successes and failures from the 1930s to the 1990s. . . . Mr. Citino is unsparingly critical when he needs to be of the U.S. Army. . . . Essential reading at all American war colleges."--Washington Times

The second part of the book, Citino praises the personal freedom allowed officers to conduct battle in the Israeli and Indian armies and writes about the lackluster performance of the Iraqi and Iranian armies that lacked competent officers. In the closing chapters of the book, Citino believes that the victory in Operation Desert Storm was due to superior firepower as well as tactics while Operation Iraqi Freedom was dangerously based on the assumption of internal rebellion and was eventually won by the use of armor. I would reccomend this book for anyone who believes that technology can replace officership and armor.
