Mr. Cohen talked about his book Supreme Command: Soldiers, Statesmen, and Leadership in Wartime, published by Free Press. The book argues that what made heads of state great wartime leaders was maintaining a relationship with their military leaders that kept the balance of power squarely in civilian hands. Mr. Cohen also talked about his next project that will focus on Fort Ticonderoga.
