From Publishers Weekly
In broad and largely abstract terms, Allard defines the characteristics of the American military structure--its traditions, history and organization--as they affect the evolution of high-level command and control in the "information age." He analyzes the conflicting pressures faced by the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines in modernizing command and control structures to accommodate electronic warfare, precision-guided munitions and combat intelligence. This sweeping study will interest defense specialists and informed students despite its lack of focus and think-tank/Pentagonese prose ("A general strategic paradigm must clearly be capable of unifying perspective of the operational environments"). The author, an Army lieutenant colonel, is a special assistant to the Army chief of staff.
