Pressestimmen

"Tira's book is a most valuable contribution to the burgeoning literature on asymmetrical conflicts. These have become a major strategic challenge facing economically and technologically advanced countries, which often struggle to achieve victory against far weaker rivals that eschew direct military confrontation. Tira offers a keen analysis of various forms of asymmetry, vis-a-vis both state and non-state rivals, and illuminates them with well-chosen examples from military history. While his perspective is universal, his focus is on the Arab-Israeli conflict, whose various wars he analyzes very perceptively, down to Israel's clash with Hezbollah in Lebanon 2006. This book offers decision-makers and students of war important lessons for the future." --Azar Gat, Tel Aviv University

""The Nature of War" is a valuable, pioneering study of the essence of war. In this readable and engaging book, Ron Tira succeeds in analyzing the differences between different types of wars and formulating new, insightful criteria for understanding the wars of the past, and even more important - the wars of the future. Using examples from classical and modern warfare, the author expands the theoretical basis essential to academics, decision makers, and military planners." --Giora Eiland, former head of Israel's National Security Council

"This book begins with a dismissal of the Clausewitzian doctrine of war, other aspects of classical war theory, and of the 'American way of war' identified with the revolution in military affairs (RMA). RMA has clearly influenced Israel's war planners (as has Clausewitz) in their preference for air power and briefer but punitive forays that successfully deliver military decision. But nations and their strategic planners do not always choose the pattern or outcome of wars. This book suggests that they can do more to influence these outcomes by drawing the proper lessons from war. The author's assertion of Israeli particularism, ventures into the broader theoretical discussion of war, literal interpretations of 'center of gravity, ' and sometimes unsupported assertions and characterizations of particular wars were frustrating to this reviewer. However, Tira peppers the work with some keen and useful, even brilliant insights about the intent of war-planners and the need to see situations 'as a whole.' If guerrilla or conventional warfare prevails in the future, then Tira urges further Israeli definition of war's terms, nature, and swift assumption of control. Recommended to those in strategic, military, and conflict studies."" --Choice "

"While portions of his argument are compelling, especially his call for 'versatile and varied military capabilities' and his emphasis on 'understanding a war in its distinctive context', Tira's observation that military force is becoming less decisive appears to contradict his advocacy of maximum force, and his exhortation that 'the complexity of war compels us to contend with the broader picture' seems inconsistent with his narrow focus on military operations (pp. 129-30). Still, this book will be of use to military officers and defence officials, and to anyone interested in Israeli interpretations of recent experiences in Southern Lebanon and Gaza and the way these are likely to shape Israeli doctrine and defence modernisation." --"Survival"

"Tira (a veteran of Israel Air Force intelligence and special operations) draws on Israel's recent experiences with war-making, as well as the broader history of 20th century warfare, in order to develop ideas that go beyond the classical Clausewitz doctrine of war towards a new theory of asymmetrical warfare that aims towards breaking the 'enemy's paradigm' or the basic assumptions that the enemy's plans rest on. He tests his theories against the cases of the 2006 Israel-Lebanon war and "Operation Cast Lead," the 2009 assault on besieged Gaza. An example of what he means by breaking the enemy's paradigm is found in this latter case, wherein he argues that 'attacking the enemy's combatants and weapons wherever they were, even in the basements of mosques, public buildings, and residential quarters' - all within the limits of international law, he insists, contrary to the judgment of the Goldstone Report and large swathes of international opinion that saw the assault as an act of collective punishment aimed primarily at Gaza's civilians - 'represents a measure of breaking the enemy's paradigm.' Such a judgment appears to discount the moral level of war, emphasized by such fourth generation war theorists as William Lind, who commented during the assault that the enemy, Hamas, 'will not only survive . . . but be strengthened by a worldwide flood of sympathy, which will translate in part into new recruits and more money.'"" --Reference & Research Book News "

"While it is certainly possible to take issue with some of Tira's ruminations about the general nature of war or the specific conduct of Israel's wars (e.g. he appears to underrate the Jewish state's ability to reap benefits from wars of attrition), his volume is a thought-provoking one that ought to be given careful consideration by military officers and diplomats alike. It can also be read with profit by both academics and laymen with an interest in war or the Middle East."" --Israel Affairs"
