On December 21, Forward Defense senior military fellow Lt Col Christopher Mulder’s book review on H.R. McMaster’s Battlegrounds was featured in DOD Reads. Mulder concludes that the book is a must-read for anyone interested in the national security process and the complex role of the United States as a global leader.

Battlegrounds will prove a valuable reference well into the future, to grasp strategic empathy, foreign policy, and national security that the general mastered over his thirty-five plus years of service to our nation.
