Abstract:

The author discusses war gaming as an analytical tool for examining the effectiveness of various alternate courses of action or of military equipment and the role analysis has in the game. Wars and war games require sets of rules The opposing sides attempt to select courses of actions which are favorable to each within these rules. Paradoxically, the great leaders find ways to break the rules as well as use them well in war, decisions are changed which may not be tested when the rules are rigidly followed in a computer simulation.
