The Spit-Shine Syndrome: Organizational Irrationality in the American Field Army

Synopsis

"Those interested in reforming the Army's personnel and evaluation systems will find The Spit-Shine Syndome's fairly detailed proposals both interesting and thought-provoking." Armed Forces Journal "Bassford's comprehensive proposals put him in an altogether different category from other self-proclaimed defense reformers.' . . . Bassford criticizes but he also offers a package of solutions. His frustrations seem to be shared by at least some of the Army's leadership. Gen. John Galvin, our top commander in NATO, has lamented the grindstone of bureaucratic business' that undermines combat readiness. In his approving foreword to Bassford's writing, retired Lt. Gen. Robert Elton declared: The potential is there to mold a truly great Army. . . . This book screams for someone to listen.' And perhaps more important, to act." Chicago Tribune
