  The Military in Modern Turkey
Rustow and Huntington suggest that the incentives leading to military interventions are not to be found in "the historical background of the armies," but in the nature of the army's interaction with the "political structure" in the context of political modernization (Rustow, 1967, p.175).
Military interventions are an outgrowth of one particular aspect of modernization, that is "the general politicization of social forces and institutions" in the absence of effective political institutions that could coordinate their interactions (Huntington, 1968, p.194).
Moreover, military intervention can occur under the condition that the civilian and military institutions are "distinct," which is an inevitable effect of the modernization of society, division of labor, increase of governmental scope and mounting "complexity of warfare and administration" (Rustow, 1967, p.175).

 Military strategy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The father of modern strategic study, Carl von Clausewitz, defined military strategy as "the employment of battles to gain the end of war." Hence, he gave the preeminence to politics aims over military goals, insuring civilian control of the military.
Military strategy was one of a triumvirate of "arts" or "sciences" that govern the conduct of warfare; the others being tactics, the execution of plans and manœuvering of forces in battle, and logistics, the maintenance of an army.
Note that of the above list of strategic terms, even this elementary summary indicates that the Mongols strategy was directed towards an objective (that schwerpunkt (main focus) being nothing less than the psychology of the opposing population) achieved through the offensive; the offensive was characterized by concentration of forces, manœuver, surprise and simplicity.

 The Year of the Memo
This group of scribes has not yet reached the vaunted social status of the Judson Welliver Society - a group of former White House speechwriters - but if their memoranda continue to impact the literary genre as they have over the past several months, they are well on their way.
Topping the list of recent notable memoranda is one entitled, "The Long Hard Slog," by Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
Rumsfeld posed all the right questions and provided strategic insight to his staff about the steps needed to win the war on terror, but Democrats and their media allies jumped on it as "evidence" that he should be replaced.

 THE PURPOSE OF U.S. ARMY EQUIPMENT SHOP   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
While civilians and academics charged senior military leaders with lacking a real understanding and historical grasp of their profession, military professionals responded with harsh criticism of the reformer's lack of combat experience and understanding of the realities of modern warfare.
Military history is replete with examples of outstanding military figures, such as Bedford Forrest, Wade Hampton, and Joshua Chamberlain, who possessed innate talent but lacked practical experience or professional training.
It is interesting to note that although most military reformers cite the blitzkrieg as an era of reform, for example, there is ample historical information that explains the superiority of the German Army from 1039-1941 as a result of incremental change to the post-WWI German Army.
