I read the first edition of this classic when I was in the Air Force 50 years ago. It was a dry, practical planning guide for a military takeover, with no political commentary or fluff. This revised edition has added much of both. I suspect that it has something to do with the author's subsequent checkered career in US intelligence, as lots of it reads more like sour grapes than gripping analysis. Parts of the original remain here, of course, but the additions and revisions make it more of a muddled mess than a coherent tome. The first edition would've gotten 5 stars - this one's lucky at half that, and mostly for the fond recollection of the prose of the first edition. Give it a pass, unless you just want to see the title on your shelf.… (mais)
