One of the most cogent and respected strategic theorists in today's military sounds the alarm: We have no viable doctrine for tomorrow's war.
The advent of the information age renders the hallowed Principles of War useless. Forged in agrarian times and honed by the more modern conflicts of the industrial age, the principles that have guided generations of America's military leaders have become dangerously outmoded.
In this, his latest book, Lt. Col. Robert R. Leonhard, author of the influential Art of Maneuver and Fighting by Minutes, proposes a new set of principles, indeed a new approach to armed conflict.

What People are saying about this
Setting aside conservative military thinking, I explain the historical development and meaning of the nine Principles of War and demonstrate their irrelevance to tomorrow. In their place, I offer three new Laws of War and seven new Principles of War for the Information Age. I think you will find this book informative, entertaining, and thought-provoking.
