Description
 
Stephen J. Cimbala (au). The 20th century is often described as a century of total war, ranging from the two world wars to countless civil wars & terrorist conflicts. Cimbala wonders how the nature of warfare has changed over the years. His starting point is an observation by Carl von Clausewitz that wars are inseparable from politics. This book explores how Clausewitz stands up against the historic experience of the 20th century & anticipates what we might expect as we enter the 21st century. Cimbala studies the two world wars, the Cold War, Vietnam, & the Gulf War. He considers the roles of intelligence, special operations, & mil. persuasion. He questions many assumptions about the nature of war. His conclusions gain added significance in our post-cold war world.
