“If we wish peace, ready for war.” “A buildup of descent weapons can be quite defensive.” “The misfortune highway might be a best track to battle.” Strategy is done of such clearly self-contradictory propositions, Edward Luttwak shows—they reflect a enigmatic proof that pervades a whole area of conflict.

In this widely acclaimed work, now revised and expanded, Luttwak unveils a rare proof of plan turn by level, from grand plan down to fight tactics. Having participated in a planning, Luttwak examines a purpose of atmosphere energy in a 1991 Gulf War, afterwards detects a presentation of “post-heroic” fight in Kosovo in 1999—an American fight in that not a singular American infantryman was killed.

In a tradition of Carl von Clausewitz, Strategy goes over antithesis to display a dynamics of annulment during work in a crucible of conflict. As feat is incited into better by over-extension, as fight brings assent by exhaustion, typical linear proof is overthrown. Citing examples from ancient Rome to a possess days, from Barbarossa and Pearl Harbor down to teenager fight affrays, from a plan of assent to a latest operational methods of war, this book by one of a world’s inaugural authorities reveals a ultimate proof of troops disaster and success, of fight and peace.
