Description: Veteran military correspondent George C. Wilson paints a realistic picture of how defense budgets are constructed and approved. His fast-paced narrative interwoven with personal stories and insights from the major players gives readers an inside look at the battle between the 105th Congress and the Pentagon as they agreed on a 250 billion dollar defense budget.

Accessible in level and style, Wilson's journalistic prose demystifies the Realpolitik among highly partisan members of Congress, the individual armed forces, as well as civilian and military leaders, thus giving readers a sense of the tradeoffs involved on all sides.

With a critical eye, Wilson looks ahead to the wars of the 21st century and asks tough questions: are we ready for future wars or are we prepared for the last war -- the Cold War? Does the Pentagon need more money? Can it really do its job with less? Is pork barrel politics really necessary?
