Formed soon after Pearl Harbor, the Joint Chiefs of Staff were officially responsible only for the nation's military forces. Their functions grew to encompass a host of foreign policy concerns during World War II, however, when the military voice assumed an unprecedented importance. Analysing the wartime rise of military influence in US foreign policy, Mark Stoler focuses on the evolution of and debates over US and Allied global strategy. In the process, he examines military fears regarding America's major allies - Great Britain and the Soviet Union - and how those fears affected President Franklin D. Roosevelt's policies, interservice and civil-military relations, military-academic relations, and post-war national security policy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A prodigious work of research and analysis on US foreign and military policy, and on strategic planning for World War II. It is a gold mine of information."
"Allies and Adversaries" marks Stoler as one of the finest military and diplomatic historians of his age. ("ARMY")
Stoler's work is seminal, forcing us to rethink radically much about the war we thought we knew so well. ("Intelligence & National Security")
In making so much of the familiar terrain of policy-making seem new, Stoler has provided an altogether worthy study. ("Washington Post Book World")
This is a soundly researched book that will be found of value to specialists in the development of foreign and military policy. ("American Historical Review")
A lucid, logical examination of US military thinking about the world from the late 1930s through to the end of the Second World War. ("Times Literary Supplement")
