Summary ?No military service can long remain effective without searching self-criticism and continuous re-examination of its own ideas. Wylie, well known in the Navy, is a refreshingly and outspoken individual, thoroughly at home on the bridge of a ship, but equally at home in the semantics of dialectical discussion. He has produced a simple but relevant little work in an attempt to promote order in the discussion of strategy. ... To the traditional theories of strategy-the maritime theory, the air theory, the continental theory-Wylie adds the?Mao theory' of wars of national liberatio.
