Military Strategy, Joint Operations, and Airpower Reviews

Provocative, even controversial, Military Strategy, Joint Operations, and Airpower is a competing departure from seminal concepts in military strategy and doctrinal norms that seeks to establish new paradigms in the way we conceive of the military instrument of power. A thought-provoking read for anyone interested in strategic studies. There is particularly excellent work in the sections on Operational Design, the roles of Intelligence and ISR, and Global Mobility and Agility. This work will stimulate critical thinking for anyone interested in modern war and the Joint Force. -- Charles H. Jacoby, Jr., General, USA (Ret.)
