The Savage Wars of Peace Mr. Boot discussed his book The Savage Wars of Peace: Small Wars and the Rise of American Power, published by Basic Books. The book is a history of the smaller, undeclared wars that, according to Mr. Boot, have been important in American international affairs. Mr. Boot contends that America’s failure to win the Vietnam War was due to the American military’s inability to apply the lessons of the “small wars” of the past. The book also profiles heroes in American military history that remain largely unknown. close
