Book Summary:

Exploring the usefulness of the study of history for contemporary military strategists, this volume illustrates the great importance of military history while simultaneously revealing the challenges of applying the past to the present. Essays from authors of diverse backgrounds--British and American, Civilian and Military--present an overwhelming argument for the necessity of the study of the past by today's military leaders in spite of these challenges. Part I examines the relationship between history and the military profession. Part II explores specific historical cases that reveal the repetitiveness of certain military problems.

Book Summary:

In the final part of the trilogy, we find that space and time have been altered by the Janus Gate. Members of the crew of the Enterprise have been thrown backward and forward through time, altering history, and then returning to the present many years older or younger. Mr Spock and Chief Engineer Scott have managed to avoid the effects of the Janus Gate and are trying desperately to reorganise the crew and to find a way to pass them through the gate to restore them to their proper ages. This task is made even more difficult when they realise that they must re-adjust history to ensure not only that everyone still exists in the present, but also that the Federation itself has a future. Captain James T. Kirk, meanwhile, remains trapped in his own past. As a boy, he barely survived a brutal massacre on Tarsus IV - an event which resonates through twenty-third century history. Can he stand by now and watch those same events unfold again? The traumatic memories of Enterprise crewmember Lt Kevin Riley -- a fellow survivor of Tarsus IV -- may be Spock's best hope to locate the captain before time runs out for them all.

Book Summary:

Sometimes the game of future's past is played by bending the rules. But the citizens of the city of Atlanta have broken them all. Thomas Pepper draws close...dangerously close to discovering the answers to the three questions that every Person of Color in America wants to know: Who killed the first Black president of the United States? Who is the Caretaker? And what is the Whirlwind? Special Agent Christopher Prince and his childhood friend Dr. Angel Hicks Dupree learn that their lies and worse...all of their truths have come back to potentially destroy them both. And while one player tragically exits the game forever, another experiences a rebirth that you will have to see to believe.

Book Summary:

Throughout the world today there are obvious trouble spots that have the potential to explode into serious conflicts at any time in the immediate or distant future. This study examines what history suggests about the future possibilities and characteristics of war and the place that thinking about conflict deserves in the formation of American strategy in coming decades. The author offers a historical perspective to show that armed conflict between organized political groups has been mankind's constant companion and that America must remain prepared to use its military power to deal with an unstable, uncertain, and fractious world.Williamson Murray shows that while there are aspects of human conflict that will not change no matter what advances in technology or computing power may occur, the character of war appears to be changing at an increasingly rapid pace with scientific advances providing new and more complex weapons, means of production, communications, and sensors, and myriad other inventions, all capable of altering the character of the battle space in unexpected fashions. He explains why the past is crucial to understanding many of the possibilities that lie in wait, as well as for any examination of the course of American strategy and military performance in the future—and warns that the moral and human results of the failure of American politicians and military leaders to recognize the implications of the past are already apparent.
