Shock & Awe

The much-referenced 1996 book Shock & Awe: Achieving Rapid Dominance by Ullman and Wade out of the National Defense University is available on-line. I’ve only had a chance to skim it, but it seems worth a closer look. I find it particularly interesting (beyond the obvious reasons) because it’s written as a proposal which remains to be tested and lays out what evaluations remained to be done, and what fundamental changes in military organization and training they believed needed to be made for their strategy to be effective.
