Summary

Summary

"Fall from Glory, picked by Proceedings as a notable book of the year, is a shocking, no-holds-barred expose of the scandals, corruption, and avoidable deaths that have blackened the reputation of the U.S. Navy in recent years and continue to plague it. In a searing look at the cadre of autocratic, secretive admirals and the secretaries of the Navy who implicitly supported them, Vistica provides the details behind the succession of scandalous "incidents."" "In this newly updated paperback edition, Vistica explores the Navy's recent problems, most notably the suicide of the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Boorda. Fall from Glory reveals the tradition of command that has permitted corruption and a disregard for law and ethical behavior to thrive at every level."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
