"Adm. James Holloway describes this book as a contemporary perspective of the events, decisions, and outcomes in the history of the Cold War - Korea, Vietnam, and the Soviet confrontation - that shaped today's U.S. Navy and its principal ships-of-the-line, the large-deck, nuclear-powered aircraft carriers. Without question, the admiral is exceptionally well qualified to write such an expansive history. As a carrier pilot in Korea, commander of the Seventh Fleet in Vietnam, Chief of Naval Operations in the mid-1970s, and then as a civilian presidential appointee to various investigative groups, Holloway was a prominent player in Cold War events."--BOOK JACKET.
