The Challenge of Change: Military Institutions and New Realities, 1918-1941 by Edited by Harold R. Winton

The contributors chose France, Germany, Great Britain, the Soviet Union, and the United States as focus countries because their military institutions endeavored to develop both the material capacity and the conceptual framework for the conduct of modern industrialized warfare on a continental scale.
