This study examines the special dependence of military professionals on history in their shaping of doctrines, style, and attitudes in spite of the wide gap between the portrayal of war in military history and the far greater intricacy of its reality.

Special foci in the analysis include: the fragility of doctrine- the chronic confounding of plans and expectations in actual operations- the congruences of chaos and creativity theoretics- effects of war on the environment- and problems of evidence and reportage. Three cases--battle cruisers, tank destroyers, and heavy fighter aircraft--are presented to illustrate paradoxes, especially the gap between vision and realization, and the tension between the urge to control and the impulse to create chaos in war.
