from Who What Why:
It’s been more than 60 years since the United States formally declared war, yet we’ve been at war for most of that time. How has that happened, given the laws we have that require Congressional approval to go to war, and why?
Authors Larry Hancock and Stuart Wexler answer those questions with Shadow Warfare: The History of America’s Undeclared Wars. The book chronicles the extensive covert warfare the U.S. has engaged in from Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s time up to the present day.
Shadow Warfare digs into the tension between the laws governing American overseas military action and the need to engage in deniable, often-illegal activities to achieve foreign policy goals.
