Playing war

by John M. Lillard | 30 May 2016
Synopsis
Rehearsing and transforming combat Between the First and the Second World War, the U.S. Navy used theexperience it had gained in battle to prepare for future wars throughsimulated conflicts, or war games, at the Naval War College. In Playing War John M. Lillard analyzes individual war games in detail, showinghow players tested new tactics and doctrines, experimented withadvanced technology, and transformed its approaches through thesewar games, learning lessons that would prepare them to make criticaldecisions in the years to come. Recent histories of the interwar period explore how the U.S. Navy digested the impacts of World War I and prepared itself for World WarII. However, most of these works overlook or dismiss the transformational quality of the War College war games and the central role they played in preparing the navy for war. To address that gap, Playing War details how the interwar navy projected itself into the future through simulated conflicts. Playing War recasts the reputation of the interwar Naval War College as an agent of preparation and innovation and thewar games as the instruments of that agency.
