Mandeles examines previous large-scale changes in military capability and draws inference to current and future questions of military transformation. Early chapters compare how the Navy's aviation planners and the Army Air Corps approached technological and operational uncertainty, and how the U.S. Marine Corps and the Royal Marines developed amphibious operations before WWII. The conclusion lays out a very reasonable argument for keeping the Department of Defense structure multi-organizational, arguing that interaction among groups of organizations enables innovation by enhancing the application of evidence, inference, and tactical knowledge.
