The Science of War: Back to First Principles

Synopsis

Forty years of confrontation in Europe have produced a complex set of conditioned reflexes in western military thinking. With the ending of the Warsaw pact, planning and analysis specialists have had to look again at basic principles. The analysis of threat and response has been transformed in recent years: in practical terms, this affects what is taught to both new officers and senior officers about to assume common responsiblities. The Staff College at Camberley is an international focus for new thinking in the likely development of military operations, and The Science of War is the response of serving officers to this pattern of change. Their analysis, presented here, marks an important stage in the reframing of operational practice for the 1990s.
