Abstract

Stray Voltage is a timely book for a nation engaging in a global war on terrorism. Unlike most of the monographs reviewed in this journal, it does not explore the past, but rather offers a vision for the future. Written by retired brigadier general Wayne Michael Hall, the central premise of Stray Voltage is that the United States has entered into a “Hundred Years’ War” against cunning, ruthless adversaries who hate America and the American way of life. Because these enemies have no chance of competing with conventional U.S. military forces, Hall concludes that they will have no choice but to employ asymmetric strategies, tactics, and tools to achieve their ends. Foremost of these will be “knowledge war” and “information operations.”
