The New Project

"Six Kinds of Camouflage: Why the Pentagon Needs to be Fixed." This is the working title of the book I am working on.  It had its beginnings in the "Transformation" chapter of my book, "A Short History of the Long War."  Two key themes will be consolidation and generalization in the face of too much separateness and specialization among and between the services.  With the expected budget cuts and reductions in force levels over the next decade more will truly have to be done with less.

Chapters will cover topics like:

teeth to tail ratio
plan 1945
growing gap between trigger pullers and point and clickers
people versus technology
unit reorganization
privatizing the VA
