Explanation

The blank describes a politician who leads the opposition, and whose martially-themed book title is said to be telling, so a word that means something like argumentative or belligerent would make sense. Both compliant and diffident are nearly the opposite of what you’re
looking for, so eliminate choices (A) and (C).

Neither circumspect, which means cautious, nor milquetoast, which means timid, is supported by the sentence, so eliminate choices (B) and (E). Both pugnacious and disputatious can mean argumentative, so choices (D) and (F) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.

Hence D and F are correct!
