Four-star General Wesley K. Clark became a major figure on the political scene when he was drafted by popular demand to run for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in 2003. But this was just one of many exceptional accomplishments of a long and extraordinary career. Here, for the first time, General Clark uses his unique life experience—from his difficult youth in segregated Arkansas where he was raised by his poor, widowed mother; through the horror of Vietnam where he was wounded; the post-war rebuilding of national security and the struggles surrounding the new world order after the Cold War—as a springboard to reveal his vision for America, at home and in the world. General Clark will address issues such as foreign policy, the economy, the environment, education and health care, family, faith, and the American dream. Rich with breathtaking battle scenes, poignant personal anecdote and eye-opening recommendations on the best way forward, General Clark's new book is a tour de force of gripping storytelling and inspiring vision.

With the end of the Cold War came not the end of history, but the end of America's sense of its strategic purpose in the world. Then, after a decade of drift, the US was violently dragged back into international conflict. Its armed forces responded magnificently but its leaders' objectives were substantially flawed. We fought the wrong war—twice—for reasons that were opaque, and few American citizens understood the cause for which their sons and daughters were fighting and dying. War is a poor substitute for strategic vision, and decisions made in the heat of imminent conflict are often limited by the emotions of the moment. In Don't Wait for the Next War, Wesley K. Clark, a retired four-star general of the US army and former Democratic candidate for president, presents a compelling argument for continued American global leadership and the basis on which it can succeed—a new American strategy. America needs both new power and deeper perspective. The platform for American leadership is to use America's energy resources to spark sustainable economic growth, building new strength to deal with pressing domestic issues like the deficit as well as the longer term challenges to US security—terrorism, cyber threats, the next financial crisis, China's rising power, and climate change. Such a strategy is not only achievable but essential, and it is urgently needed. This is the true test of American leadership for the next two decades, but it must start now, so America has the power and vision to deal with the acute crises that will inevitably come—in the Mideast, Europe, or Asia.

For more than half a decade, Ryan Zinke was a commander at the most elite SEAL unit. A 23-year veteran of the US Navy SEALs, Zinke is a decorated officer and earned two Bronze Stars as the acting commander of Joint Special Forces in Iraq.

After winning the war in Kosovo as NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander, Wesley Clark went down in the history books as one of the great generals of modern times. He successfully ran the first all-air war in history and ended the ruthless dictatorship of Serbian leader Slobodan Milosevic without one allied casualty. President Clinton awarded him the Medal of Freedom and dozens of foreign countries lavished him with their highest honors. But in the United States, Clark received no fanfare or parades, as had the generals who came home from Desert Storm a decade earlier. Why? Now this fascinating biography, filled with insights from those who know him well, addresses this puzzling question, while telling the complex story of this remarkable American hero who has been hailed as one of the most talented, creative, and brilliant officers in the U.S. Army. First in his class at West Point, a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford and quickly promoted, Clark was among the “water-walkers,” high-achieving officers whose performance sets them apart. Like every organization though, the Army is a network of alliances that must be carefully maneuvered. And like other top officers, Clark clashed with some colleagues—while earning the loyalty and respect of the majority of other senior officers as well as of the soldiers under his command. During his last command during the war in Kosovo, Clark’s clashes with the Pentagon resulted in his low-profile, early retirement. His many allies were furious with his treatment, including Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who had told President Clinton that “Clark was the best partner we could have.” Drawing on research and her extensive interviews with Clark’s relatives, friends, military colleagues, and others close to him in Chicago, Little Rock, West Point, among other locales, bestselling biographer Antonia Felix highlights Clark’s notable experiences that led to his rise to national prominence. The author brings us memorable descriptions of an immigrant family fleeing persecution in Russia to establish itself in Chicago, of a childhood tragedy and a longheld family secret, of growing up in the South during the civil rights struggle, and of a brilliant mind that brought him extraordinary academic and professional achievement. Here is the compelling story of a spiritual individual, son of a Jewish father and Methodist mother, later converting to his wife’s Catholic faith while fighting in Vietnam, who has made a noble commitment to public service. Wesley Clark truly embodies West Point’s ideals of duty, honor, and country. As he stated in February 2004 upon withdrawing from his candidacy for the Democratic nomination for president, “I’ll be doing all I can to contribute to building a new and better America.”
