Potholm’s ‘Winning at War’ Earns Kudos from ‘Naval War College Review’

DeAlva Stanwood Alexander Professor of Government Christian Potholm‘s latest book, Winning at War: Seven Keys to Military Victory Throughout History (Rowman & Littlefield, 2010) is reviewed in the Naval War College Review, the quarterly publication of the U.S. Navy’s Naval War  College for the discussion of public policy matters.

The review by Lt. Col. Paul C. Krajeski mentions the College, and praises the author and his liberal arts approach for “having produced a work of unique value for policy makers and military strategists.”

An excerpt:
