From the Publisher"Murray's analysis of the leadership of Air Chief Marshal Sir Hugh Dowding during the Battle of Britain is alone worth the price of the book."
David T. Zabecki, Military History
"Williamson Murray has crafted a compelling argument that adaptation in war is a difficult, problematic process."
Captain Stanley D. M. Carpenter, Proceedings
"This is a rich field to be explored, not only by academics and military historians, but, most importantly, the armed forces themselves – but Murray could not be expected to cover everything. He has produced not only an excellent historical account of adaptation in twentieth-century warfare, but a forensic dissection of the common factors and approaches that can be applied to improve the chances of a military organisation successfully adapting to future challenges. It is the best single volume study of the subject yet written, and deserves a place on the bookshelf with Smith’s The Utility of Force and Cohen and Gooch’s Military Misfortunes: The Anatomy of Failure in War - and alongside Sun Tzu and Clausewitz."
Ben Barry, Survival
"… an important work for those interested in the events it covers, as well as for anyone concerned with how armed forces tick."
