Overview

Marine general Tony Zinni was known as the “Warrior Diplomat” during his nearly forty years of service. His credentials as a soldier were impeccable, whether he was leading troops in Vietnam, commanding hair-raising rescue operations in Somalia, or – as Commander in Chief of CENTCOM – directing strikes against Iraq and Al Qaeda. But it was as a peacemaker that he made just as great a mark – conducting dangerous troubleshooting missions all over Africa, Asia, and Europe, and then serving as Secretary of State Colin Powell’s special envoy to the Middle East, before disagreements over the 2003 Iraq war and its probable aftermath caused him to resign.” Battle Ready follows the evolution of both General Zinni and the Marine Corps, from the cauldron of Vietnam through the operational revolution of the ’70s and ’80s, to the new realities of the post-Cold War, post-9/11 military – a military with a radically different tools for accomplishing it. Opinions differ sharply about just what that job and those tools should be – and General Zinni makes it clear where he stands.
