Freedman shows how those who have imagined future war have often had an idealized notion of it as confined, whether through a dashing land offensive, and decisive, brief, and have regularly taken insufficient account of the possibility of long wars-hence the stubborn persistence of the idea of a knockout blow, nuclear first strike, or cyberattack.

Questions about the future of war are a regular feature of political debate, strategic analysis, and popular fiction.
