Military Power: Land Warfare in Theory and Practice
In Military Power: Land Warfare in Theory and Practice the contributors consider the multifarious aspects of the Anglo-American approach to war. The essays range from study of volunteer soldiering in the Mexican War of 1846-48, analyses of operations in the two World Wars, to a reconsideration of the nature of future warfare. All the contributors are concerned to base their work on a thorough consideration of the overall historical context. They explore the relationship between theory and practice in military operations. A primary interest is reviewing the problems of transition from the small-scale duties of an imperial or frontier constabulary to coping with the demand of continental warfare. This recurring problem is a central feature of the Anglo-American military tradition. Throughout a major theme is the importance of peacetime in the mental preparation and training for war.
