From one of the twelve founding members of Delta Force, a collection of commentary on the future of war.
In Beyond Shock and Awe, media commentator Eric Haney—a founding member of Delta Force and author of Inside Delta Force—along with other noted military analysts and award-nominated editor Brian M. Thomsen, examines how our military must evolve to face changing times, technology, and adversaries. From limited wars to possible large scale invasions of Syria or Iran—or a major military stand-down with North Korea—Beyond Shock and Awe is a fresh, provocative peek at America’s army of the future.
Contributors include: • Harlan K. Ullman and James P. Wade Jr. which first used the term “shock and awe” • Kevin Dockery on the weapons of future wars • Professor William Forstchen on how precision guided weaponry will eliminate “problem” individuals before they can start a war • Eugene Sullivan on such legal issues as preemptive attacks and military tribunals • Paul A. Thomsen on integrating military intelligence into strategic warfare • John Helfers on the importance of cultural knowledge in winning wars and building alliances • Eric Haney on the many ways in which Rapid Dominance of an adversary can be gained through Shock and Awe.
