From the disarray in the aftermath of Vietnam, to the "Be All You Can Be" campaign of the 1980s, to the prowess and efficiency displayed in Desert Storm, the U.S. armed services did no less than reinvent themselves -- with stunning results. Prodigal Soldiers chronicles the military's remarkable revitalization by following the lives of five senior commanders who led the nation to victory in Desert Storm: Colin Powell, Chuck Homer, Barry McCaffrey, Stan Arthur, and Walt Boomer. In profiling the best and brightest of a unique generation of officers, James Kitfield has written what The Wall Street Journal has called "one of the most illuminating military books in recent years".
