"As the authors explain, if we had taken this network analysis approach used for targeting the Taliban and applied it to our understanding of the relationship and dependencies between our partner governments, we would have been in a much better position to react to, and in some cases have been able to predict, many of the issues that became apparent. [...] Military Strategy in the 21st Century bridges a gap, taking the conceptual and sometimes impenetrable debate about the direction that Western forces should be heading, into a practical and logical assessment of what that could and probably should look like." --Wavell Room: Contemporary British Military Thought"In Military Strategy for the 21st Century: People, Connectivity, and Influence, four authors who have devoted their careers to the security of the United States share their thoughts about the evolving character of war in an increasingly interconnected, networked world--and suggest innovations that will make us safer and more capable. Highly recommended." --John Nagl, author of Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife and Knife Fights: A Memoir of Modern War"In Military Strategy for the 21st Century, Army veterans and scholars offer a fresh approach to strategic and operational art rooted in increased connectivity and mastery of a new domain of competition--the critical human domain. A unique blend of experience and reflection, highly recommended to anyone interested in being successful in 21st-century conflict." --F. G. Hoffman, author of Mars Adapting: Learning in War
