In Winning at War, Christian Potholm explains how seven variables_technology, sustained ruthlessness, discipline, receptivity to innovation, protection of military capital from civilians and rulers, will, and the belief that there will always be another war_have served as predictors of military success over time and across cultures. He provides case studies of their implementation, from ancient battles to today.
What are the independent variables that determine success in war? Drawing on 40 years of studying and teaching war, political scientist Christian P.

In Winning at War, Potholm explains these variables_technology, sustained ruthlessness, discipline, receptivity to innovation, protection of military capital from civilians and rulers, will, and the belief that there will always be another war_and provides case studies of their implementation, from ancient battles to today.
