In his book "Military Strategy, The Politics and Techniques of War", John Stone explains why translating political effects and goals into military action or armed force, is a hard thing to do. To make his case, the writer examines the Napoleonic and Prussian era of 1800-1945, and the US dominated Western strategy since 1945. Although the book ends at 2009, it is a must read for military strategists, to learn lessons from the past.
