Abstract : With the advent of the airplane the arena of combat action was extended into the air and into the enemy's far rear; armored units completely displaced the cavalry from combat use; the general characteristics and capabilities of combat equipment made World War I primarily positional and World War II primarily a war of maneuvers; the very existence of atomic and hydrogen bombs and their principal carriers -- missiles, even without first being established in a war even of limited size, have had the result that the greatest military powers, assuming their large-scale use and the effect of their action in a future war, have made substantial corrections in preparations for the conduct of warfare.
