Epigraph
Everything in war is very simple, but the simplest thing is difficult. The difficulties accumulate and end by producing a kind of friction that is inconceivable unless one has experienced war.
     Carl von Clausewitz, On War
 
[Clausewitz] introduces the element that others have called "the fog of war," the perennial inadequacies and inaccuracies of intelligence.
     Bernard Brodie, "A Guide to the Reading of On War"
Dedication
To Ann and Hans Schuler
Two of the most generous people
I have ever known and loved,
without whom many lives would be
different--especially mine
 
and
 
To Chris and Gary
Whose love, achievements, and friendship
have brought me more happiness
than any father could hope for
