James F. Dunnigan's classic text on the principles of war, fully revised for the 1990s, presents a conclusive picture of the world's complex weapons, armed forces, and tactics. In its original edition,How to Make War was accurate in assessing and predicting the outcomes of all the wars that occurred in the 1980s and 1990s to date. It also has become a standard reference work for military and civilian readers. Today, describing a new world order - one in which the art of war hasn't changed but the number of equipped players has - Dunnigan gives a vital understanding of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons, Third World ballistic missiles, the ramifications of civil war in the former Soviet Union and in China, the implications of diminished armed forces in both the United States and Russia, and much, much more.
