War: Knowledge of the Enemy from Napoleon to Al-Qaeda eBook: John Keegan: Kindle Store uk ᚎ Kindle Author John Keegan ᛈ According to Keegan The First World War , there is a good reason why military intelligence is so often described as an oxymoron inflicting and enduring destruction often has no room for reflection, just retaliation But retaliation tends toward attrition, and attrition is expensive thought, for Keegan, offers a means of reducing war s price, taking commanders and armies inside enemy decision action loops, helping identify enemy weakness, warning of enemy intentions or disclosing enemy strategy Keegan offers a series of case studies in the operational significance of intelligence, ranging from Admiral Nelson s successful pursuit of the French fleet in 1805, through Stonewall Jackson s possession of detailed local knowledge in his 1862 Shenandoah Valley campaign, to the employment of electronic intelligence in the naval operations of WWI and its extension and refinement during WWII For that conflict, Keegan expands his analysis, discussing intelligence aspects of the German invasion of Crete, the U.S victory at Midway and the defeat of the U boats in the Battle of the Atlantic To balance an account heavily focused on technology, he incorporates a chapter on the importance of human intelligence in providing information on the Nazi V weapons Keegan concludes with a discussion of post 1945 military intelligence that stresses the difference between a Cold War in which the central targets of intelligence gathering were susceptible to concrete, scientific methods, and recent targets that, lacking form and organization, require penetration through understanding That paradigm shift in turn is part of Keegan s general argument that intelligence data does not guarantee success This book shows that the British need not have lost on Crete that the American victory at Midway was not predetermined At a time when armed forces tout the information revolution, Keegan writes in the belief that the outcomes of war are ultimately the result of fighting Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.Results in war, in the last resort, are an affair of body, not mind of physical force, not plans or intelligence This is renowned military historian Keegan s analysis of 1942 s Battle of Midway Discounting the value of military intelligence is just one of the paradoxical conclusions drawn in the eight case studies comprising this work With his usual shrewdness about the highly confusing world of war, Keegan subtly weaves into his narrative the disruptions that seem to hex intelligence collection and analysis In only one case does Keegan grant primacy to a commander s use of intelligence Stonewall Jackson s 1862 campaign in the Shenandoah Valley In all of the other examples, Keegan ascribes the outcome to another factor at Midway, it was luck during the 1941 invasion of Crete, it was berserk German determination Within each episode, Keegan uncovers a communication breakdown, an analytical mistake, or a tactical blunder that turned even golden military information to dross Throughout, Keegan projects a deep empathy for battle victims, who were swept away by the thousands This humane sensibility, on display in book after book, explains why the author is the most popular, and perhaps the best, contemporary writer of military
