The Power game( Visual )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1996 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shows that in spite of the huge military build-up during the 1980s the nation's military effectiveness has been limited and could force the early use of nuclear weapons. Reasons include rivalry among the military services, career moves, coverups, pork barrel funding, erroneous military test results, and whistle blower backlash. Shows how military spending decisions are often made less for national security reasons than for economic and political interests. With little hope of change in sight, the massive waste and inefficiency in the Pentagon's procurement of arms will continue
