Eyes on the Horizon: Serving on the Front Lines of National Security

By Richard B Myers
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.
