1 Review
Forfatteren, der har en fortid som søofficer i USN er tillige historiker på ph.d. niveau og ansat i Naval Historian Foundation i Washington. Det beskrives her, hvorledes det er lykkedes at udvikle og bevare et godt forhold til magthaverne i Bahrain. Der er således her etableret en permanent flådestation til rådighed for USN. Forholdene er undertiden udsat for kritik, der er en følge af regionens konflikter. Men det beskrives kronologisk, hvorledes den lille men vigtige succes er udviklet til overvejende glæde for både personellet og Bahrains borgere.
