David Petraeus: A Biography offers an objective assessment of the life and career of the man who is arguably the most important military figure of the decade and certainly an officer who has had an enormous impact on U.S. military strategy and policy.

The biography examines the full range of Petraeus’s experiences, from his youth in New York to his involvement with the 101st Airborne Division to the 2007 MoveOn.org controversy. The author, a military historian and army strategist, explores the general’s considerable influence on officer development, as well as the ways in which his integration of diplomatic, economic, and informational components into military campaigns have transformed the Department of Defense’s approach to warfare. Readers will be able to clearly trace Petraeus’s rise to prominence and discover how his actions have shaped, and been shaped by, current events in the United States and the Middle East.
