Any discussion of the theories of strategy in the modern world can bog down in a morass of details and equivocations. Particular care must be taken to identify the major themes or structural members of this complex subject. With this in mind, the theories of strategy discussed here relate only to the use of force in the modern world. In other words, this examination is limited only to theories having a military application.
