Great story, but it took till most of the way through the book to figure out if the author was satirizing the philosophy of the Air Vice-Admiral or presenting it as (forgive me) admirable. On the whole, I tended to sympathize with the "bad guy," even after I was sure he was supposed to *be* the bad guy.

As we don't have a good deal on "the Young Caesar", this is adequate.
