'Dereliction of Duty'

While attending the University of South Carolina, McMaster wrote his thesis on the US military leaders during the Vietnam War, criticising them for not challenging President Lyndon B. Johnson and Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara over their strategies.  This was later published as a book under the title 'Dereliction of Duty' and is still on the recommended reading list in military training schools..

The Battle of 73 Easting

During the Gulf War, McMaster was commanding 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment in the Iraqi desert. His company encountered the enemy by surprise when they crested a rise, and were outnumbered. However the nine tanks of Eagle Troop destroyed over eighty Iraqi Republican Guard tanks and other vehicles without loss.  This was mainly due to the US troops using state-of-the-art Abrams tanks, whereas the Iraqi tanks were very much out-dated.  Details appear in Tom Clancy's non-fiction book 'Armored Cav'.
