Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff during the critical four
years following September 11, General Richard B. Myers proposes a
bold new plan to prepare America for the diverse national security
challenges of the twenty-first century. In this captivating and
revealing memoir, General Myers talks candidly about his career in
the military, the unforgettable events of September 11, and the
global war on terror. Myers believes that America has misidentified
its adversary, focusing too narrowly on tactical battles instead of
on a long-range strategy that will overcome a global insurgency.
Rather than mandate what Islam should become, we must work with an
international community that includes responsible non-Western
states to protect against the behaviors we consider universally
unacceptable--especially those that promote violence against the
U.S. and its allies. Finally, Myers maintains we must integrate our
own government agencies so that we can focus a sustained approach
to this strategy. Told with unfailing honesty, Eyes on the Horizon
is an unforgettable memoir of one of our nation's highest-ranking
officers and a courageous call for change that will strengthen
American national security and defend a democratic way of life.
