    DescriptionEnthralling and explosive, Prophets of War is an expos of Americas largest military contractor, Lockheed Martin. When President Dwight D. Eisenhower gave his famous warning about the dangers of the military industrial complex, he never would have dreamed that a company could accumulate the kind of power and influence now wielded by this behemoth company. As a full-service weapons maker, Lockheed Martin receives over $25 billion per year in Pentagon contracts. From aircraft and munitions, to the abysmal Star Wars missile defense program, to the spy satellites that the NSA has used to monitor Americans phone calls without their knowledge, Lockheed Martins reaches into all areas of US defense and American life. William Hartungs meticulously researched history follows the companys meteoric growth and explains how this arms industry giant has shaped US foreign policy for decades.
