Admiral Radford's naval career culminated with two terms as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Eisenhower presidency. These memoirs, in manuscript when the Admiral died in 1973, deal primarily with the years 1946 to 1957: the unification struggle, the B-36 controversy, Korea, Indochina. Basically personal recollections, only lightly backed up by documents.
