Naval War College Review
Planning the Unthinkable: How New Powers Will Use Nuclear, Biological,and Chemical Weapons,
The title says it all. This book is a compi- lation of empirical and analytical data on the strategic evolution of nuclear, biolog- ical, and chemical (NBC) agents and weapons in the twenty-first century. A central theme of the book is how new re- gional players (states and nonstate ac- tors) are likely to convert prevalent conventional military doctrine and train- ing into nonconventional means of war- fare. The book is very ambitious in its scope; it attempts—overall, success- fully—to address systematically concep- tual problems in the integration of such weapons into the military infrastructure, delivery systems, command and control procedures, and war plans.
