A military theorist and experienced armor officer, Brian Steed provides insights into the future of armed conflict.
He analyzes five battles, one each in Korea, Vietnam, the Falklands, the Persian Gulf, and Somalia; placing all in an appropriate historical and geographic context. He also explores the specific strategies employed in each of these conflicts and demonstrates that the key to victory on the battlefields of the future is the small unit.
In understandable and accesible language, Steed focuses on why the events occurred as they did, and explores the significance of each battle in terms of its political and military ramifications.
Armed Conflict will ultimately inform students about the historical trends of combat operations and the realities of war–past, present, and future.
