Abstract : The authors discuss the changes that are occurring in land warfare and where they are leading, as well as land warfare constants. They consider changes in the context within which war is fought, technological changes in the conduct of land combat, and continuities in the nature of warfare. The elements of change likely to have the greatest impact on the Army and joint conduct of land warfare are discussed. The authors conclude that change and continuity, when considered together, provide a solid foundation for preparation for 21st century warfare....
