Fog of Peace and War Planning by Talbot C. Imlay

Book Description

How do we plan under conditions of uncertainty? The perspective of military planners is a key organizing framework: do they see themselves as preparing to administer a peace, or preparing to fight a future war? Most interwar volumes examine only the 1920s and the 1930s. This new volume goes back, and forward in time, to draw on a greater expanse of history in order to tease out lessons for contemporary planners. These chapters are grouped into four periods: 1815-1856, 1871-1914, 1918-1938, and post-Second World War. They progress from low-tech to high-tech concerns, for example, the first period examines armies, while the second period examines navies, the third asseses navies combined with air forces, and finally for the Kaiser chapter explores nuclear issues and decision-making.

Fog of Peace and War Planning by Talbot C. Imlay Fog of Peace and War Planning, Hardback (September 2005)

The perspective of military planners is a key organizing framework: Do they see themselves as preparing to administer a peace, or preparing to fight a future war? This volume contains chapters that are grouped into four periods: 1815-1856, 1871-1914, 1918-1938, and post-Second World War, that range from low-tech to high-tech concerns.

Facing the Second World War by Talbot C. Imlay Facing the Second World War, Hardback (June 2003)

This is a study of how the British were more successful in managing the strains of modern industrial war than the French. The book addresses such current historical debates as the nature of the political Right and Left in Europe during the 1930s, the extent of rearmament and economic mobilization, and the causes of France's defeat in 1940.
