The title reference is to Franz Neumann, author of Behemoth: The Structure and Practice of National Socialism (1942) and described by the author as the "intellectual leader" of R&A's team of German experts. The policy prescription advocated by R&A was similar to what was adopted after 1947, but the Europe of that time was decidedly different than the one of 1944 at which the proposal was aimed.

Marquis, Susan L. Unconventional Warfare: Rebuilding U.S. Special Operations Forces. Washington, DC: Brookings Institution, 1997.

According to National Journal, 19 Aug. 1997, "U.S. Special Operations Forces have gone from being a poorly funded and staffed organization to an elite military unit.... Marquis follows the political battle that brought back the forces after they were almost eliminated following the Vietnam war." Cohen, FA 77.2 (Mar.-Apr. 1998), finds that the author of this "workmanlike volume ... displays a fine awareness of the peculiar culture of the special operations community." Since calls for the use of these forces are likely in the future, this book has "particular significance."

For Crerar, AIJ 17.3/4, this book provides a nicely done overview of the problems that U.S. unconventional forces faced by the late 1970s, and notes that Marquis tells the story of the effort to rejuvenate those forces in the early 1980s "exceptionally well." The author appears to have had "exceptional entree to the [special operations] community's members" who "were generous with their views." The book is not without minor flaws (especially in detailing the recent history of the special operations forces), but the overall result is "well worth reading."

Bode, History 26.2, sees the book as "a competently assembled partial history of the rebuilding of important military capabilities shed during America's revulsion against 'the Vietnam experience.'" However, there are "gaps that mar her account." Although the mistakes and omissions "are not trivial deficiencies in an authoritative history,... neither should they prevent anyone from reading this book."
