ELIOT, George Fielding. THE STRENGTH WE NEED. A Military Program For America Pending Peace. NY: The Viking Press, 1946. 8vo., gray cloth in dust jacket; 261 pages. First Edition. Eliot [1894-1971] wrote 15 books on military and political matters from the 1930s through the 1960s and was a military analyst on radio and television. In this book, he argues that the only way for peace in future is for America to become the supreme military power that would be unchallenged. Signed presentation from Eliot on the front endpaper, to Minnesota Governor Harold Edward Stassen: "To Harold Stassen with all good wishes from George Fielding Eliot." Stassen [1907-2001] is probably best-known for being a perennial U.S. Presidential candidate- seeking the GOP nomination ten times since 1940. An uncommon book, especially signed or in a dust jacket. Very Good (covers nice; contents clean & tight); worn (chips along edges & few tears, $3.00 price is present) d/j. $100.00.
