Summary and Info
In light of the age-old belief of Confucius that no idea is new, Dr. Mets examines the role of Colonel Warden in the Gulf War to determine if a revolution in military affairs had occurred. He relies on several twentieth-century antecedents to Warden, including Giulio Douhet, Hugh Trenchard, and Billy Mitchell to distill a pattern. Mets also addresses whether ''the argument that antedated the Gulf War to the effect that such conflicts between states using conventional weapons and methods are a pressing phenomenon.'' Chapter 6, the concluding chapter, provides an overview of Mets's discussion.
