The Generals
The Generals American Military Command From World War II to Today By Ricks, Thomas E. Book - 2012

Pretty clear argument by Ricks--a former Pentagon employee and longtime military reporter--that difficulties in military interventions since WWII has been a failure of leadership at the top of the military chain of command. Despite it being clear that nearly all us actions are against entrenched locals, planners still plan for the Big One with China, Russia, You Name It. Leadership of Johnson, Nixon, and Bush II has not helped.
