Book News Annotation:

Kolko's latest book (his tenth) offers a critical view of modern warfare; the beliefs, expectations, myopia, and social roles of those who engineer it; and its social and political consequences. He details the civilian response to the mass trauma of WWI, WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War and discusses the post-1945 era, describing the increasingly complex and interwoven nature of politics and warfare as it has evolved. His conclusions are sobering.
