Elements of Military Strategy : An Historical Approach, Paperback / softback Book

Elements of Military Strategy : An Historical Approach Paperback / softback


This book uses history in two ways: as the source of ideas about strategy and as examples to illustrate the elements by showing their application to specific campaigns and their utility in understanding the role of strategy in military operations.

The focus is on American military campaigns from the American Indian Wars to the War in the Gulf.

Those case studies are used to illustrate the strategy behind land, sea, and air campaigns.

Over a fifth of the book examines the U.S. war against Japan because it furnishes such fine examples of independent and interdependent operations on land, on the sea, and in the air.

The cases studied are not only intended to illustrate strategic ideas but also to show the utility of the author's distinctive approach to organizing military strategy.

The book will appeal to military professionals, students of military science, and enthusiasts.
