it was amazing
Read in July, 2007

From the opening anecdote recounting the date the Pentagon's groundbreaking ceremony was conducted (September 11, 1941) to his closing, masterful analysis of the struggle between civilian and military leaders over control of the nuclear arsenal, Carroll does not disappoint or bore. Highly recommended for anyone seeking to understand how a temporary war HQ for conducting WWII operations morphed into a pervasive cultural institution.
