Openly disdainful of current US military strategic planning and its "obsession with technological and bureaucratic machinery and their handmaiden, advertising humbug," Hanley (US Air Force Academy) calls for reforming how the US educates and trains its military officers. He proposes the establishment of joint service war university for developing an elite cadre of staff officers with a curriculum that encourages innovative thinking and recognizes the moral and intellectual factors that underpin military victories. He also describes cases demonstrating such moral and intellectual factors in military campaigns in France in 1940, Stalingrad in 1942, and North Africa in 1940-43.
