Scott Sigmund Gartner's prose can lean heavily on academic jargon-parts of Strategic Assessment in War read like a political scientist writing for other political scientists-but anecdotes such as the aforementioned exchange enliven the text. Indeed, Gartner has an eye for telling details.

Scott Sigmund Gartner's prose can lean heavily on academic jargon-parts of Strategic Assessment in War read like a political scientist writing for other political scientists-but anecdotes such as the aforementioned exchange enliven the text. One standard problem for the military is evaluating the performance of its leaders. In the First World War, reports the author, British infantry officers found their careers ruined if their units didn't suffer enough casualties

A strategic military goal is used in strategic military operation plans to define the desired end-state of a war or a campaign. Gartner, Scott Sigmund, Strategic Assessment in War, Yale University Press, 1999. Usually it entails either a strategic change in an enemy's military posture, intentions or ongoing operations, or achieving a strategic victory over the enemy that ends the conflict, although the goal can be set in terms of diplomatic or economic conditions, defined by purely territorial gains, or the evidence that the enemy's will to fight has been broken.

These are the basic questions that Scott Gartner answers in his recent book, Strategic Assessment in War (1997, Yale University Press). Gartner answers these question by developing and testing a model of decision making that fits into the bounded rationality tradition of political science. Rational choice scholars might argue, for instance, that decision makers decide to change directions when their estimates of the expected payoffs from the current strategy are outpaced by one or more alternative strategies.

How do military organizations assess strategic policy in war? In this book Scott Gartner develops a theory to explain how military and government leaders evaluate wartime performance, how much they change strategies in response to this evaluation, and why they are frequently at odds when discussing the success or failure of strategic performance.Blending history, decision theory, and mathematical modeling, Gartner argues that military personnel do reevaluate their strategies and that they measure the performance of a strategy through quantitative, "dominant" indicators. But different actors within a government use different indicators of success: some will see the strategy as succeeding when others see it as failing because of their different dominant indicators. Gartner tests his argument with three case studies: the British shift to convoys in World War I following the German imposition of unrestricted submarine warfare; the lack of change in British naval policy in the Battle of the Atlantic following the German introduction of Wolf Packs in World War II; and the American decision to deescalate in Vietnam after the Tet Offensive. He also tests his approach in a nonwar situation, analyzing the Carter Administration's decision to launch the hostage rescue attempt. In each case, his dominant indicator model better predicts the observed behavior than either a standard-organization or an action-reaction approach.

This book centers around Gartner's explanation of how decision makers in the international world assess an issue and formulate policy based on that assessment. Leaders are presented with an overwhelming and often contradictory amount of information. Some indicators will indicate success and others will point to problems.

This book has actually been hugely influential in my thinking when looking both at the decision processes of the President and Joint Chiefs of Staff as well as in my own decisions. The book is concise and not padded unnecessarily, which I love -- he puts his argument into a clean explanation and then provides some examples to walk the reader through exactly what he means.

I sincerely wish that more academic books were written in this style. It is infinitely more readable without sacrificing a whit of intelligence or depth.

I had to purchase this book for class and was pleased with the content. It has become a refrence for me even all these years later.

Cordann
Fantastic book! The critical aspect to understand from the book is what you count as an indicator may or may not provide the information to understand success or failure of your strategy. This includes indicators of changes in the environment affecting your strategy.

Apart from a very decent, crisp and entertaining read, I imagine that the model "dominant indicator approach" can be quite helpful to design a decision model for macro economists or other people in the business community (manufacturing, batch production etc.).
The essence of this model is explained in the 2nd chapter (ca. 50 pages).

Dishadel
The author's premise, that military decision makers rely on key metrics as indicators for the (in)effectiveness of courses of action is interesting. However, it ignores the influence of other factors, such as public opinion, personal bias, and political influence in the decision making process.

An intersting read, crisply written and enjoyable.
