Principles" was written in 98, so much of Leonhard's talk on the power of information was prescient .

Principles" was written in 98, so much of Leonhard's talk on the power of information was prescient; information is power. I don't believe we have yet to realize the true power of information, for many still place too much emphasis on technology. Leonhard concludes with an instructive paragraph: "With a prudent respect for the past, we must be intellectually ready to question every assumption and assertion, because people will die and societies will suffer violence and destruction at the hands of these principles. To the degree that we can scrutinize the wisdom of the past, we may ordain a better future.

The advent of the information age renders the hallowed Principles of War useless. Robert R. Leonhard, author of the influential Art of Maneuver and Fighting by Minutes, proposes a new set of principles, indeed a new approach to armed conflict.

The crisis is upon us: We have no viable doctrine for tomorrow's wars. Now that the world has entered the information age, principles that have served to enlighten the art of war no longer work. Born of agrarian times and honed during the industrial age, the classical principles of war are, in large part, hopelessly outdated. Radical change is needed now. The Principles of War for the Information Age provides a prescription for this change.

This book is one of the best strategy books I've read lately. His ideas are really thought provoking. The only negative thing I have to say about this is that in one or two chapters he tends to talk about weapon systems or military ideas that really only make sense to a american general.
But overall it is a masterpiece.

I wish that his Fighting by minutes will be released again for a better price. And I wish that he writes a new book soon.

I have been working US Army force modernization for the last five years. When I read the introductory material for this book, I was looking forward to reading it, The book was a disappointment. I kept waiting for the author to remove the veil on Information Age warfare, but the end of the book came and I didn't encounter anything profound. A lot of platitudes, and nothing else.

Colonel Leonhard's The Principles of War for the Information Age is a very good addition to growing body of work concerning the intellectual underpinnings of our army. (The author confesses that he has written primarily about ground warfare---which should not surprise since he's an infantry officer.) Other reviewers have criticized Leonhard's lack of depth/explanation of then existing "principles" used by the US Army to train/instruct leaders, and this criticism has some merit, but I side with the reviewer's who observe that the author is putting down markers; starting the dialogue, as it were. Part 3 The Laws of War (Humanity, Economy, & Duality) is well-thought-out and explained. Leonhard promises the reader to see the "light" on reading the chapter on "duality"---and while I did not see the light, I must confess his explanation was compelling. Leonhard highlights the dichotomy between "knowledge" and "ignorance" and the importance "knowing" what we know to maximize our efforts, to increase our effectiveness/efficiency. His encouragement to synthesize the extremes of "knowledge"/"ignorance to find effective solutions has application beyond the martial arts.

"Principles" was written in 98, so much of Leonhard's talk on the power of information was prescient; information is power. I don't believe we have yet to realize the true power of information, for many still place too much emphasis on technology. Jim Storr's The Human Face of War takes this tack---emphasizing the human in the loop. This is not to suggest Leonhard ignores the soldier---he does not, but these authors viewed warfare from two different perspectives, and on my reading are complementary in many respects.

Leonhard concludes with an instructive paragraph:
"With a prudent respect for the past, we must be intellectually ready to question every assumption and assertion, because people will die and societies will suffer violence and destruction at the hands of these principles. To the degree that we can scrutinize the wisdom of the past, we may ordain a better future."

"Principles" advances the dialogue and our body of knowledge is better as a result of Leonhard's insightful and "illuminating" efforts. This book is highly recommended.

LTC Leonhard is a brilliant tactician who examines the past, the present and the future simultaneously--a coup d-oeil---creating an understanding of everything far better than cowardly copying the Germans or someone else. He takes what he knows to be true as a current U.S. Army battlefield Commander and applies this experience to fresh thinking far better than any arm-chair wannabe who praises another service that has not done its homework and thought very deep about the issues, but is deep in platitudes. The 9 Principles of war (MOOSE MUSS) as we remember them are actually derived from Clausewitz if another reviewer had his wits about him. They are a guide to thinking no more divinely inspired as the writings of Big Al or the wannabe tacticians of America's sea-based posturers.
LTC Leonhard is one of America's and the Army's best and brightest thinker-warriors who refuses to succomb to the platitudes of the past or the present Germanophiles, who omit in their discussions that maneuverism died in the fortress cities of Tobruk, Stalingrad, Bastogne when it met the defense-in-depth fueled by a nation at total war. We need new thinking not new wine in old wine bottles!
Good work, Sir!

What really impresed me about this book was Leonhard's application of physics terms to modern warfare. Using quantities like "velocity", "momentum" and "mass", he distills modern warfare to its most basic components, and by so doing, offers the foundation for the proper application of maneuver doctrine in 21st century arms.
While perhaps not as engaging as "The Art of Maneuver", "The Principles of War for the Information Age" is another significant contribution to military theory by an outstanding author.
A point for point deconstruction:
This work focuses in analyzing "the nine principles of war" written by British General J.F.C Fuller in the original 1922 operations manual. Each of Fuller's Nine Principles are considered, and then contrasted to historical examples where the principle fails. It would have been nice to see Fuller's historical examples used, and if a rebuttal was necessary then to give one, but typically the other does not cite to Fuller in a case per case basis.
Considering the age of J.F.C. Fuller's Nine Principles and perhaps due to this book's impassioned attack against them, they have been "retired" to the status of an appendix in the Marines current operations manual.
This book will grow on you, it is good after several readings, but requires several readings to get its full meaning. I enjoy it now, but I hated it when I first bought it.
