Overview

This is a manual written by a military strategist in the far future, when warfare is conducted on a galactic scale. Important principles are illustrated by parables, taken from our storied future past.

A thousand centuries of recorded history have given transhumanity countless examples of success and failure in warfare. Great warriors and statesmen come and go, and some are able to leave their worlds marked by their presence. Yet, in the long view, certain patterns begin to emerge in the course of transhuman events – patterns that are repeated many times, in many diverse civilizations. These patterns appear, not because of the will of great statesmen, or the power of great warriors, but because of the inherent nature of all known sentient beings, and the constraints imposed by physical reality. The military strategist must understand the patterns in the fabric of history. This handbook is intended as a practical guide for survival of a civilization, based on knowledge gleaned from long and tragic history.

Meet the Author

William Haloupek Mathematician -- PhD 1992 University of Wisconsin-Madison Astronomy is my hobby. Kind of an obsession at times! Not so much about where to point my telescope, but more learning about exotic places. I started out in Topology and Analysis at Texas Tech, then went to Wisconsin and switched to Applied Math. Started working on a PhD thesis in General Relativity, then changed to Dynamical Systems, and ended up with a PhD in Differentiability Theory. Studied a lot of Classical Physics. I also worked as a radar engineer in the missile defense industry for 10 years. This gave me an appreciation of the "real world." Other hobbies: genealogy, coin collecting, science fiction, philosophy, hiking.
