About this product
- DescriptionOccasionally, during times of peace, military forces achieve major warfighting invations. Terry Pierce terms these developments 'disruptive invations' and shows how senior leaders have often disguised them in order to ensure their invations survived. He shows how more common invations however, have been those of integrating new techlogies to help perform existing missions better and t change them radically. The author calls these 'sustaining invations'. The recent invation history suggests two interesting questions. First, how can senior military leaders achieve a disruptive invation when they are heavily engaged around the world and they are managing sustaining invations? Second, what have been the external sources of disruptive (and sustaining) invations? This book is essential reading for professionals and students interested in national security, military history and strategic issues.
