One cannot but admire the author’s excellent discussion of how modern technology has complicated command and the processes of command; of the interaction of this complication with the political complexities of Vietnam; and of the uses and limitations of systems analysis in general, and in Vietnam in particular. -- Trevor Dupuy ? Washington Times

One of the finest and most perceptive military historians writing in English today… Van Creveld has marshaled more than enough historical evidence?and with great depth and richness?to support his conclusions. -- Robert L. Goldich ? Armed Forces and Society

[Van Creveld] provides us with a vivid historical narrative of the significant steps in the evolution of command systems from the Greek period to the Vietnam war: the birth of the nation-state regular army, the rise of the science of military strategy, the advent of new communication technologies, the development of means for mobilization, and the emergence of computer and space technologies. ? Ethics

I can think of few books on military subjects of greater originality and importance than Martin van Creveld’s scholarly and fascinating dissertation on command in war… The subject is examined in depth, supported by a wide historical base, with a perceptive, unprejudiced eye, and the result expressed in clear prose of high literary merit. -- Michael Carver ? Royal United Services Institute for Defence Studies Journal
