Strategy

£14.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Softback. 2001. Belknap Harvard. In very good condition. Very minor creasing to front cover.If you want peace, prepare for war. A build-up of offensive weapons can be purely defensive. The worst road may be the best route to battle. Strategy is made of such seemingly self-contradictory propositions, Edward Luttwak shows - they exemplify the paradoxical logic that pervades the entire realm of conflict.;In this revised and expanded work, Luttwak unveils the peculiar logic of strategy level by level, from grand strategy down to combat tactics. Having participated in its planning, Luttwak examines the role of air power in the 1991 Gulf War, then detects the emergence of "post-heroic" war in Kosovo in 1999 - an American war in which not a single American soldier was killed.
