504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 255-274) and 
520    "When we think about the future of war, the military and 
       Washington and most everyone gets it backwards. We think 
       in terms of buying single military systems, such as 
       fighter jets or aircraft carriers. And when we think about
       modernizing those systems, we think about buying better 
       versions of the same things. But what really matters is 
       not the single system but "the battle network"--the 
       collection of sensors and shooters that enables a military
       to find an enemy system, target it, and attack it. This 
       process is what the military calls "the kill chain"--how 
       you get from detection to action, and do it as quickly as 
       possible. The future of war is not about buying better 
       versions of the same systems we have always had; it is 
       about buying faster, better kill chains.As former Staff 
       Director for the Senate Armed Services Committee and 
       senior policy advisor to Senator John McCain, Christian 
       Brose saw this reality up close. In The Kill Chain, he 
       elaborates on one of the greatest strategic predicaments 
       facing America now: that we are playing a losing game. Our
       military's technological superiority and traditional 
       approach to projecting power have served us well for 
       decades, when we faced lesser opponents. But now we face 
       highly capable and motivated competitors that are using 
       advanced technologies to erode our military edge, and with
       it, our ability to prevent war, deter aggression, and 
       maintain peace. We must adapt or fail, Brose writes, and 
       the biggest obstacle to doing so is the sheer inertial 
       force of the status quo"--|cProvided by publisher.
