Abstract:

The authors examine present problems with the nature of military power 30 years into the future, which must be solved before movement toward the future can make much progress. They try to find the questions, and, once having found them, to formulate a range of answers since no single answer is likely to be precisely on target. If the papers are not dramatically futuristic in approach, they are nevertheless set against a future backdrop which is still in the process of being defined. The authors have a difficult task the task of the professional soldier in time of peace is to try to figure out the future in such a fashion that, when it arrives, he wont be so far wrong as to be unable to take corrective action quickly.
