"A superb example of military history written to guide the practicing soldier but at the same time fascinating for the general reader."--Russell F. Weigley, author of The American Way of War "Should be highly useful to soldiers and scholars alike and especially valuable in all military schools from the advanced courses through the war colleges, and a staple in any university where military history is taught."--Dave R. Palmer, author of Summons of the Trumpet "For those considering the challenges of future warfare, House's insights on past military operations cannot be ignored."--Michael D. Doubler, author of Closing with the Enemy "Without a doubt the finest examination of modern ground combat in print."--Peter R. Mansoor, author of The GI Offensive in EuropeReseña del editor:
For centuries, the world has witnessed the development and use of increasingly complex and powerful military systems and technologies. In the process, the ""art of war"" has truly become the art of combined arms warfare, in which infantry, artillery, air support, intelligence, and other key elements are all coordinated for maximum effect. Nowhere has this trend been more visible than in the history of twentieth-century warfare. This title covers among other things Desert Storm, the war in Chechnya, and the rise of ""smart weapons"" and related technologies. It traces the evolution of tactics, weapons, and organization in five major militaries, American, British, German, Russian, and French, over 100 years of warfare. Revealing both continuities and contrasts within and between these fighting forces, he also provides illuminating glimpses of Israeli and Japanese contributions to combined arms doctrine. Expanding his analysis of the world wars and the wars in Korea and Vietnam, House also offers much new material focused on the post-Vietnam period. Throughout, he analyzes such issues as command-and-control, problems of highly centralized organizations, the development of special operations forces, advances in weapons technology- including ballistic and anti-ballistic missile systems- the trade-offs involved in using ""heavy"" versus ""light"" armed forces, and the enduring obstacles to effective cooperation between air and land forces.
