Abstract : This document surveys developments in warfare and military operations research, to see what lessons these may hold for the future. Specifically, the author assesses two possibilities: (1) that there is a need to reform military O.R. to purge it of accumulated sins, and (2) that military O.R. must be redirected, if it is to ride the wave of the future.
