FREDERICK KAGAN is co-author of While America Sleeps: Self-Delusion, Military Weakness, and The Threat to Peace Today. His articles on defense and foreign policy have appeared in the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and other publications. He lives with his wife, Kim, in Washington, D.C.
In Finding the Target, Frederick Kagan describes the three basic transformations within the U.S. military since Vietnam. First was the move to an all-volunteer force and a new generation of weapons systems in the 1970s. Second was the emergence of stealth technology and precision-guided munitions in the 1980s. Third was the information technology that followed the fall of the Soviet Union and the first Golf War.
