The Army cannot effectively project power if it cannot get to where it needs to go to confront future adversaries. The authors of this report developed scenarios and conducted political-military games to determine what strategies, tactics, and capabilities potential adversaries might use to prevent or complicate U.S. access to key areas and how effective the U.S. counters to these tactics are.

The author challenges the careless thinking that perpetuates such cliches. Convinced that strategy and logistics should never be studied independently of one another, he blends the two fields into a concept he labels Strategics-a concept which can be applied to military planning, force design, training, and tactics. Strategics offers a sensible, pragmatic approach to the planning and conduct of military operations, especially in the increasingly vital world of joint operations.

In this retelling of the tale, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, we see events from the perspective of Nicholas, a bored teenager who has to spend long hours watching sheep on an empty hillside. To break the boredom he dreamed of ways to have fun. He gets lots of laughs at watching the townspeople respond to his cries for help. But then the real test comes when a wolf does come. His practical jokes cause the townspeople to ignore his true cry for help. His tactics of fun caused him to suffer loss, but it also opened his eyes.
