Alternative Strategies: Strategy, Tactics and New Technology

  • Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Cameron

Abstract

This book has as its aim the discussion of alternative strategies. This particular contribution is designed to cover technological developments and how they are affecting and will affect strategies, tactics, and equipment. The nature of each activity is dynamically affected by the surge of new technology. The actual changes are often delayed by the bureaucratic machine and the conservative thinking and conceptions of the armed forces whose ideas are often hindered by fighting the last war, or being led astray by a different type of operation such as Vietnam or, in some ways, the Falklands.
