Scales on war

£9.99

Product description

Scales on War is a collection of ideas, concepts, and observations aboutcontemporary war taken from over thirty years of research, writing, andpersonal experience by retired Major General Bob Scales. Scales' unique styleof writing utilizes contemporary military history, current events, and hisphilosophy of ground warfare to create a very personal and expansive view ofthe future direction of American defense policies.Each chapter in the book addresses a distinct topic facing the upcomingprospects of America's military, including tactical ground warfare, future gazing,the draft, and the role of women in the infantry. Fusing all of these topicstogether is Scales' belief that, throughout its history, the United States hasfavored a technological approach to fighting its wars and has neglected itsground forces.Scales on War shows that, as a result of America's focus on winning wars withtechnology rather than people, America's enemies have learned how to winbattles by defeating such technology. As a well-known warfare expert, Scalesdemonstrates how only a resurgent land force of Army and Marine small unitswill restore America's fighting competence.
