 Amazon.fr : Weapons Grade: How Modern Warfare Gave Birth To Our High-Tech World: Livres en anglais: David Hambling   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Throughout history, war and the threat of war have driven innovation and accelerated the uptake of new technology—from the nomadic warriors who introduced the stirrup and the kebab to the world, to the British Navy’s funding of Marconi’s newfangled radio.
With the skills of a master storyteller, Hambling traces the history of this relationship in the modern era and shows how precision eye surgery emerged out of the military quest for a "death ray," how transistors and silicon chips initially helped build better bombs, and exactly why the 747 has such a distinctive shape.
Hambling explores the current cutting edge of modern military research as he seeks to identify the technologies that will transform our lives in the decades to come.

As do current military analysts, Trinquier approached the problem of countering modern warfare by assessing differences between linear clashes of armies and the tactics, goals, methods, and norms of the insurgent or guerrilla.

 NEWS ANALYSIS / Hezbollah wages new generation of warfare
In modern warfare theory, the difference between strategic and tactical victories is crucial.
The various theories of modern warfare -- such as fourth-generation warfare, "netwar" and counterinsurgency operations -- share some elements with ancient forms of warfare, as well as with techniques that are not usually associated with war, including counter-narcotics operations and cyber-terrorism.
