9780080417967: On Future War

An examination of the nature of war and its radical transformation in our own time. The author argues that the Clausewitzian assumption that war is rational is outdated, and that strategic, logical planning is unrelated to the current realities of guerrilla armies, terrorists and bandits. He sets out to demonstrate that our most basic ideas of who fights wars, and why, are inadequate - because man has a need to "play" at war. Van Creveld also wrote "Technology and War", "Command and War" and "Supply and War".
