Description
From one of the twelve founding members of Delta Force, a collection of commentary on the future of war. Media commentator Eric Haney-a founding member of Delta Force and author of Inside Delta Force -along with other noted military analysts and award-nominated editor Brian M. Thomsen, examines how our military must evolve to face changing times, technology, and adversaries. From limited wars to possible large scale invasions of Syria or Iran-or a major military stand-down with North Korea- Beyond Shock and Awe is a fresh, provocative look at America's army of the future. Articles include the work by Harlan K. Ullman and James P. Wade, Jr., which first used the term "shock and awe;" Kevin Dockery on the weapons of future wars; Professor William Forstchen on how precisionguided weaponry will eliminate "problem" individuals before they can start a war; Eugene Sullivan on such legal issues as pre-emptive attacks and military tribunals; Paul A. Thomsen on integrating military intelligence into strategic warfare; William Terdoslavich on how America's swift victory in the Iraq War gave way to a bloody stalemate; John Helfers on the importance of cultural knowledge in winning wars and building alliances; and Eric Haney on the many ways in which rapid dominance of an adversary can be gained through shock and awe.
