This book uses history in two ways: as the source of ideas about strategy and as examples to illustrate the elements by showing their application to specific campaigns and their utility in understanding the role of strategy in military operations. The focus is on American military campaigns from the American Indian Wars to the War in the Gulf. Those case studies are used to illustrate the strategy behind land, sea, and air campaigns. Over a fifth of the book examines the U.S. war against Japan because it furnishes such fine examples of independent and interdependent operations on land, on the sea, and in the air. The cases studied are not only intended to illustrate strategic ideas but also to show the utility of the author's distinctive approach to organizing military strategy. The book will appeal to military professionals, students of military science, and enthusiasts.

"Not only is Elements of Military Strategy widely and deeply researched, but it is also very well written. It is a challenging approach to the subject and contains many original and, on the whole, convincing ideas that should stimulate the mind of any thinking student of military history and strategy."-Warren W. Hassler, Jr. Professor Emeritus of History, Pennsylvania State University author of With Shield and Sword: American Military Affairs from Colonial Times to the Present
