Excerpt: Success and failure in war—as in most human endeavors—rests on the ability or failure to create and exploit asymmetries in capabilities and action. These asymmetries result from a process of technological revolution and evolution, based on microrevolutions, and generalship that exploits them in time and space. Methods of warfighting undergo changes through microrevolutions that are usually driven by innovations such as the stirrup, crossbow, gunpowder, steamship, wireless, et al. A revolution in military affairs (RMA) occurs when there are essential changes in the nature of war requiring a reassessment of the way we plan and conduct warfare. This revolution displays a shift in the center of gravity of military activity. The common denominator is a growth in either mobility or firepower, or both, that increases the premium on time and space. Throughout history time and space have been played against each other to gain advantage in battle. With the passing of the years, time has gradually been compressed Squadron Leader Ajay Singh, Indian Air Force, is a fighter while space has expanded.
