Editorial Reviews

"Derek Reveron has put together an excellent work describing the controversial role of our nation's combatant commanders. It is an insightful, accurate, and provocative presentation of the issues and history done by first-rate contributors who clearly know the subject."--General Anthony C. Zinni, United States Marine Corps (Ret.) "America's Viceroys constitutes a definitive, well-targeted survey book about a relatively new phenomenon: the powerful general officers who run the military's geographic warfighting commands."--Robert D. Kaplan, author of Imperial Grunts and Hog Pilots, Blue Water Grunts
