ZUMWALT, THE LIFE AND TIMES OF ADMIRAL ELMO RUSSELL "BUD" ZUMWALT JR. By Larry Berman
Admiral Elmo Russell Zumwalt, Jr., the charismatic chief of naval operations (CNO) and "the navy's most popular leader since WWII" (Time), was a man who embodied honor, courage, and commitment. In a career spanning forty years, he rose to the top echelon of the U.S. Navy as a commander of all navy forces in Vietnam and then as CNO from 1970 to 1974. His tenure came at a time of scandal and tumult, from the Soviets' challenge to the U.S. for naval supremacy and a duplicitous endgame in Vietnam to Watergate and an admiral's spy ring. "You can't understand today's Navy without acknowledging Bud Zumwalt's role in modernizing it's technology and renewing it's soul. He believed deeply in a strong navy worthy of our great nation, and that anyone who chose to serve in it was deserving of respect and dignity. Zumwalt is the story of a true American hero." --President William J. "Bill" Clinton Hardcover, 528 pages
