The vindication of a public figure engulfed in controversy doesn't get more dramatic than that of the former undersecretary of defense, Douglas Feith. (New York Sun, 2/12/07)

Of all the players in the planning and evolution of the Bush Administration's war on terrorism, few were more integral - or more controversial - than Douglas Feith, the chief strategist on Donald Rumsfeld's Pentagon policy team. A highly influential international policy analyst for more than a quarter century before joining the Bush Administration in 2001, Feith worked closely with Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Vice President Cheney, and President Bush in defining the U.S. response to the attacks of 9/11 - from the successful war on Afghanistan to the more challenging invasion of Iraq and its aftermath.

Now, in this candid and revealing memoir, Feith - a founding member of the neoconservative movement and an architect of the administration's preventive strategy in the war on terrorism - offers the most in-depth and authoritative account yet of the Pentagon's evolving stance during one of the most controversial eras of American history.

Drawing upon a unique trove of documents and records, this extraordinary chronicle will put the reader in the room for scores of previously unreported senior-level meetings, showing how hundreds of critical decisions were made in defense of American interests during and after the crisis of 9/11 - decisions both successful and controversial.
