As Lawrence Freedman shows, the future of war has a past and a present. Ideas of war, strategies for warfare and its practice, and organizing principles of war all have rich and varied origins which have shaped the minds of those who conceive the next war. Freedman shows how war can be studied systematically and empirically to provide a firm foundation for enlightened policy.
The Future of War - which covers civil wars to as yet unknown nuclear conflicts, proxy wars (real) to the Cold War (not), fashionably small wars to the War to End All Wars (it didn't) - is filled with insight and fascinating nuggets of military history and culture from one of the most brilliant military and strategic historians of his generation.

A good historical review of the progression of war
By understanding the history of war, maybe it is easier to predict the future. Good historical analysis, very brief future analysis at the end.

more history than future. Wikipedia would be bette
Disappointed with this book. It's more history than future. The last few chapters cover the future but it's very lightly coverd.
