520    US Intervention Policy and Army Innovation examines how 
       the US Army rebuilt itself after the Vietnam War and how 
       this has affected US intervention policy, from the victory
       of the Gulf War to the failure of Somalia, the Bosnian and
       Kosovo interventions and the use of force post 9/11. 
       Richard Lock-Pullan analyzes the changes in US military 
       intervention strategy by examining two separate issues: 
       the nature of the US Army as it rebuilt itself after the 
       Vietnam War, and the attempts by the US to establish 
       criteria for future military interventions. He first 
       argues that US strategy traditionally relied upon national
       mobilization to co-ordinate political aims and military 
       means; he subsequently analyzes how this changed to a 
       formula of establishing militarily achievable political 
       objectives prior to the use of force. Drawing on a vast 
       body of material and on strategic culture and military 
       innovation literature, Lock-Pullan demonstrates that the 
       strategic lessons were a product of the rebuilding of the 
       Army's identity as it became a professional all-volunteer 
       force and that the Army's new doctrine developed a new 
       'way of war' for the nation, embodied in the AirLand 
       Battle doctrine, which changed the approach to strategy. 
       This book finally gives a practical analysis of how the 
       interventions in Panama and the Gulf War vindicated this 
       approach and brought a revived confidence in the use of 
       force while more recent campaigns in Somalia, Kosovo and 
       Bosnia exposed its weaknesses and the limiting nature of 
       the Army's thinking. The legacy of the Army's innovation 
       is examined in the new strategic environment post 9/11 
       with the operations in Afghanistan and Iraq
