Review

"Miller, a serving officer in the US Navy with extensive economic and budgetary experience at the national level, uses the extended conflicts in Korea and Vietnam as case studies as he describes the fundamentals of financing and budgeting for war and problems in defining war costs. He examines the Korean War from 1951 to 1953, defining the security strategy and the supplemental financing requests built from it, the war in Southeast Asia from 1965 to 1975 and the record of spending, and the war that will likely top them all in cost, that on terror starting in 2001, including homeland security since 9/11. He gives 12 elements to consider in creating financing and budgets for upcoming wars."

Reference & Research Book News

"This is a major contribution to the study of US war expenditures. Miller examines US funding of three wars: Korea, Vietnam, and the global war on terror. For each he covers cost estimates and appropriation, allocation, and spending. He tries to place the material in context by preceding each introduction with a caption from a prominent source. Miller clearly explains the funding process in each case study and raises many questions, which he answers with healthy cynicism. One conclusion is that all estimates depend on assumptions; hence, they all end up wrong. Supplemental funding has been significant, incremental, and expensive in terms of opportunity costs. In discussing resources, Miller considers 12 serious issues including cost estimates, transition from supplemental to baseline budgets, advantages and disadvantages of supplemental budgeting, benefits and durability of flexible appropriations, importance of authorities relative to funding, cost components, overtime, predisposed outlook of the political leaders, congressional activism, and tensions and suspicions surrounding war expenditures…. Charts, tables, glossary, footnotes, plus introductions and summaries of chapters and sections enrich the text. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate students through professionals."

Review

"Rick Miller has done a great service for those who are charged with national security resource management in a time of protracted conflict. His book fairly and logically treats the budgeting, appropriations requests, and execution costs of the conflicts in Korea, Vietnam, and now the GWOT. It should be required reading for future national security resource managers at war colleges and public policy schools."
