ADM Stavridis (ret) talks with War on the Rocks about reading.
IMHO, Adm Stavridis is a king of generalists. Not the worst trait for a career whatever the field is, but no deep insights at all. I didn't find some.
Just saw this recommended by Tom Ricks on Foreign Policy and grabbed it at Barnes and Noble - will see how it goes: "American War" by Omar El Akkad.
Looks intriguing even if the FP review was obnoxious (a review of a review? How meta). Curious to see what you think.
Interview with author.
Currently reading. Only a few chapters in, but so far it's very intriguing.
Currently reading TGS to get psyched up for OCS. Action packed historical fiction about a WW2 captain. Its a great read so far, and its on the CNOs reading list.
