Abstract : The author examines Eisenhower's military career for important lessons on how a coherent strategy should and should not be built, particularly in times of strategic transition. He offers no new facts or insights into Eisenhower's career, but uses it as a backdrop for exploring the broader essence of strategic coherence. Since Eisenhower was directly involved in a number of major transitions for the Army, lessons from his career can help guide the strategic transition the U.S. military now faces.
