This volume is published under the auspices of the Joint History Office, Office of the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It presents material drawn from the public record of Admiral William J. Crowe, Jr., US Navy, while serving as the Eleventh Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1 October 1985 through 30 September 1989.
The text arrays in chronological order selections of his congressional testimony, published articles, public and official correspondence, public appearances, and interviews to illuminate a decisive period in the Nation's history which saw the continuing buildup of US Armed Forces and those of our alliances; tumult in the Philippines and Central America; confrontation in the Mediterranean and in the Persian Gulf; and the denouement with the Soviet Union in the Glasnost period.
These pages portray Admiral Crowe's unceasing efforts to rebuild America's Armed Forces and his devotion to the men and women of her military. Of particular note are his success in reorganizing the Joint Chiefs in accordance with the Goldwater-Nichols Act; his work to establish Unified and Specified Commands in support of the Unified Command Plan, to include Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and Central Command (CENTCOM); and his acumen as principal military adviser to the National Command Authorities under two Presidents and three Secretaries of Defense in operations in the Pacific, Mediterranean, and Persian Gulf. Arguably one of his greatest successes, and one for which he was most proud, was opening relationships with the military leaders of the Soviet Union.
