Summary
Retired after 20 years as an officer, Melton (US Army's Command and General Staff College) argues that the army entered the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq lacking a reasonable understanding of how they would or could be won, and of what damaging second-order and third-order effects the wars might initiate. Among his topics are case studies in successful offensive war, learning the wrong lessons in the Balkan wars, the military's vacuous New Doctrine, the frontiers of strategic offense, and why Americans must choose between republic and empire.
