The crisis is upon us: We have no viable doctrine for tomorrow's wars. Now that the world has entered the information age, principles that have served to enlighten the art of war no longer work. Born of agrarian times and honed during the industrial age, the classical principles of war are, in large part, hopelessly outdated. Radical change is needed now. The Principles of War for the Information Age provides a prescription for this change.

What People are Saying About This
Can the aged, revered, classical Principles of War advise us on how to handle conflict in the Information Age? The answer is a resounding 'NO!', and in my latest book, I show the reader why.
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.
