This volume argues that technology neither acts as an independent variable nor operates without major limitations, including in its capacity to obtain results. The book examines important technological advances in weaponry and power projection from sailing warships to aircraft carriers, muskets to tanks, balloons to unmanned drones—in each case, taking into account what difference these advances made. He addresses not only firepower but also power projection and technologies of logistics, command, and control. Examining military technologies in their historical context and in the present, centered on the revolution in military affairs and military transformation, the author then forecasts possible future trends.
