Excellent work, and a very interesting read. Great discussion of the need for national decision makers to understand both the strength and limitations of the forces they might employ, although I fear that it will always be a case of smart staffers providing politicians the "short course". I would have liked to see more discussion of the spatio-temporal aspects of battle planning and execution, and especially its considerations on achieving superior relative mass and superior firepower chiefly through mobility and intelligence. In the extreme tempo of the modern battlefield, the effective synchonization of fire and maneuver within time and space, achieved through timely intelligence and superior mobility, will allow commmanders to "get inside" the enemy's decision cycle and achieve the requisite mass and fire power at the decisive time and place."
