The author claims that we've steadily expanded the idea of "war" so that we're technically always at war, and the military is being asked to do so many things, many of which have nothing to do with actually fighting a war.

She writes well, but the book got long, and the point got really abstract later in the book. The first part was focused with examples, but the latter part was less so, and I had trouble figuring out if the author was going on a politically-slanted rant or not.
