We Can See Clearly Now: The Limits of Foresight in the pre-World War II RMA. By Carl Conetta, PDA Research Monograph #12, 02 March 2006. Irresolvable uncertainty attends every military revolution. Reviewing the RMA that preceded the Second World War, the essay concludes that one quality distinguishing "early adopters" is their willingness to accept risk – a trait often associated with a revisionist strategic agenda.
