A Revolution in Warfare ” – Cohen, Eliot Defense planners have foreseen an impending revolution in military affairs It could lead to a shrinking of the military, a casting aside of old forms of organization and creation of new ones, a slashing of current force struc- ture and the investment of unusually large sums in research and development Changes in warfare that occur as a consequence of forces endogen- ous to war: The French Revolution brought about the mass army and broadly based conscription Civilian technologies such as the mass-produced rifle, telegraph, and railway Information technologies The age of the mass military manned by short-service conscripts and equipped with the products of high-volume military manufacturing is coming to an end The modern corporation has stripped out layers of middle manage- ment, reduced or even eliminated many of the functional and social distinctions

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
