Author Andrew Polsky talked about the wartime decisions of several U.S. Presidents, from Abraham Lincoln to Barack Obama. All U.S. presidents, regardless of their background, serve as commanders-in-chief of the nation’s military. He argued that a president’s actions at the onset of war can determine its outcome, and that as a war continues, presidential involvement can become less effective. The New York Military Affairs Symposium in New York City hosted this event. close
