Dating from 1926, it is the culmination of his theoretical writings and an early attempt to fit mechanization into the fabric of European warfare. In this work, Fuller presents a comprehensive theory of war. While it does not reach the heights to which Fuller aspired, it retains the ability to stimulate and provoke thought seventy years after it first appeared.-Richard M.

    Clearly, JFC Fuller was a crazy person. And honestly, his threefold order of everything is a stretch, but not as much as everyone thinks. If you take it as a model rather than a theory, I think it has value. Two opposite extremes connected through their relationship - mind, body spirit; knowledge, belief, faith; you get the idea. Each has a pressure, resistance and control force and, in the context of the conditions, these forces interact to produce results. The wise man perceives the conditions and adjusts pressure and resistance in order to proceed on the correct path. War reduced to Mental, moral, and physical spheres all connected by the law of economy of force. This begets the 9 principles of war and hey, they've done ok for planners over the last few decades.

    The 3 fold order... Fuller took an interesting way to form his logic train to get people to buy into his thoughts on war. At the heart of the book, the effort that J.F.C. Fuller is trying to push is the continued study of war based on scientific principles. At the end of the day, his thoughts on the Principles of War and Law of Economy of force are very evident in the military today! I thought it was a great book!
