Summary
"War no longer exists," writes General Sir Rupert Smith, reminding us that the clash of mass national armies--the system of war since Napoleon--will never occur again. Instead, he argues, we must be prepared to adapt tactics to each conflict, or lose the ability to protect ourselves and our way of life. General Smith draws on his experience as a commander to give us a probing analysis of modern war and to call for radically new military thinking. Why do we use armed force to solve our political problems? And how is it that our armies can win battles but fail to solve the problems?--From publisher description
Summary
Offers an analysis of why military force is used to solve political problems and why victory on the battlefield does not solve the problems, and calls for a new approach that adapts the methods of warfare to each individual conflict
