From the back cover:

The Commanders reveals the inner workings of the [first] Bush administration through two years of conversations and policy choices that twice led the U.S. to war. Here is a compelling group portrait of the decision-makers: President George Bush; Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney; Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell; Secretary of State James A. Baker III; and National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft.

In this detailed account, we see the top leadership as never before, wrestling with the great questions of military policy in the closed meeting rooms and private offices of the Pentagon and the White House. The human story behind the momentous choices that are defining a new era in international relations, The Commanders is essential listening to understand the new world order dominated by American military might.
