THE ACCIDENTAL ADMIRAL
A Sailor Takes Command at NATO 
By Adm. James Stavridis, USN (Ret.)
After he was selected to be NAO’s sixteenth Supreme Allied Commander,
 Te New York imes 
 described Jim Stavridis as a “Renaissance admiral.” A U. S. Naval Academy graduate with a master’s degree and doctorate from Te Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at ufts University, conversant in both French and Spanish, this author of numerous books and articles impressed the Navy’s leaders and senior Pentagon civilians with his wide range of interests, educational background, keen understanding of strategic doctrine, mastery of long-range planning, and command of international affairs.Since NAO had previously been led by Army and Air Force generals, Stavridis saw his assignment as the first naval officer to take command as somewhat “accidental.” As the American and NAO commander in Europe responsible for 120,000 coalition troops serving in fifty-one nations, on three continents and at sea he had come a long way since almost leaving the Navy for law school five  years after receiving his commission.
Te Accidental Admiral 
 offers an intimate look at the challenges of directing NAO operations in Afghanistan, military intervention in Libya, and preparation for possible war in Syria—as well as  worrying about the Balkans, cyber threats, and piracy, all while cutting NAO by a third due to budget reductions by the twenty-eight nations of the alliance. More than just describing the history of the times, Stavridis also shares his insights into the personalities of President Barack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Secretaries of Defense Robert Gates, Leon Panetta, and Chuck Hagel, Afghan President Hamid Karzai; Generals David Petraeus, Stanley McChrystal, John Allen, and many more.Known as an innovator and an early adopter of technology and social media, Stavridis’ ability to think “outside the box” and sail in uncharted waters is unmatched. He shares his insights on leadership, strategic communications, planning, and the convergence of threats that will confront the United States and its allies in the near future. Stavridis is an advocate of the use of “Smart Power,” which he defines as the balance of hard and soft power. He explains that in creating security in the twenty-first century it is critical to build bridges, not walls, and stresses the need to connect international, interagency, and public-private actors to achieve security.
ADM. JAMES STAVRIDIS, USN (RET.)
 is a 1976 distinguished graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy who spent over 35 years on active service in the Navy. He commanded destroyers and a carrier strike group in combat and served for seven years as a four-star admiral, including nearly four years as the first Navy officer chosen as Supreme Allied Commander for Global Operations at NAO. After retiring from the Navy he was named the dean of Te Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at ufts University in 2013. In addition, he currently serves as the U.S. Naval Institute's Chair of the Board of Directors. He has written articles on global security issues for
Te New York imes, Te Washington Post, Atlantic Magazine, Naval War College Review,
and
Proceedings 
 and is the author or co-author of several books, including
Command at Sea 6
th
 Ed.
and
Destroyer Captain.
