Tuesday, April 1, 2014

The current issue of Strategika asks the question: Are 20th-century-style conventional military assets and strategies still relevant, or are they being replaced by drones, cyber-warfare, counterinsurgency, and satellite technologies?  Using history as a guide, Andrew Roberts, Frederick W.
