Sun Tzu: Theorist for the Twenty-first Century?
In an environment in which the United States is the dominant conventional military power, many theorists argue that future wars will be unbalanced or asymmetrical. This USAWC AY-10 resident student author argues that in that circumstance, Sun Tzu's indirect or battle avoidance theory is relevant to United States war strategy in the twenty-first century. Colonel Wilcoxon elaborates on Sun Tzu's theories and explains why they are so viable and applicable in contemporary strategic environment. He concludes that to counter current national security threats, twenty-first century United States' strategists should rely on Sun Tzu as their primary theorist because his writings are as pertinent today as they were thousands of years ago.
