"Without a common intelligence system, over which it has some influence and directive authority, the Alliance is virtually doomed to drift.... A more effective organization could be achieved by operationally linking the corresponding intelligence activities of the other NATO countries with the US theater structure, in effect creating a NATO intelligence command."

Publishers Weekly (via calls Crusade "an engrossing account of the actions and utterances of those who directed and fought in the Persian Gulf War. He also provides a thorough analysis of diplomatic and political aspects of the conflict.... Expectedly, the book's dominant personality is General H. Norman Schwarzkopf, whose operatic rages are here shown to be an integral element of his command style. Atkinson defends the much-maligned VII Corps commander, Gen. Fred Franks, against Schwarzkopf's 'unfair and unwarranted' criticism."

The U.S. Special Forces "are among the best trained, best equipped and best conditioned soldiers of any army in any era.... [But] there are limits to what can be expected of these elite forces." In an unconventional campaign, such as they will be called upon to conduct in Afghanistan, "the ability of the U.S. military to think in unorthodox terms will be as important as valor, tenacity and firepower."
