Van Creveld's approach is sober and objective while observing those aspects of human nature that make warriors, soldiers and wars tick. These observations leave little room for optimism. His assessment of nuclear weapons, hi-tech heavy armaments and their relevance to the various forms of what he calls "low-intensity conflict" will make even the most hawkish think twice regarding these high budget items, not as matters of liberal principle but in terms of their practical value in successfully defending against the threats Van Creveld predicts will dominate the future and are now dominating our present. The points he raises inevitably lead to questions regarding the viability of the nation state as we know it. I will not look at war the same way after having read this book. Not a comforting read at all, but highly recommended,
