Overview

Bush's Pentagon chief emerges from the pages of this journalistic portrait as a mixture of embattled hero and shrewd chief executive officer, battling terrorists and bureaucrats alike in an almost single-handed effort to win the so-called "War on Terror." Scarborough (Washington Times), while allowing occasional criticisms of the Defense Secretary to slip through, primarily celebrates Rumsfeld's most recent tenure as Secretary, describing his Pentagon restructuring efforts, his decisions regarding the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, his increasing reliance on special operations, and his battles with senior military men and other members of the Bush administration. One chapter offers a biographical portrait of somewhat wider scope. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
