This new study considers military space strategy within the context
of the land and naval strategies of the past. Explaining why and
how strategists note the similarities of space operations to those
of the air and naval forces, this book shows why many such
strategies unintentionally lead to overemphasizing the importance
of space-based offensive weaponry and technology. Counter to most
U.S. Air Force doctrines, the book argues that space-based weapons
don't imbue superiority. It examines why both air and naval
strategic frameworks actually fail to adequately capture the scope
of real-world issues regarding current space operations. Yet by
expanding a naval strategic framework to include maritime
activities-which includes the interaction of land and sea-the
breadth of issues and concerns regarding space activities and
operations can be fully encompassed. Commander John Klein, United
States Navy, uses Sir Julian Corbett's maritime strategy as a
strategic springboard, while observing the salient lessons of other
strategists-including Sun Tzu, Clausewitz, Jomini, and Mao
Tse-tung-to show how a space strategy and associated principles of
space warfare can be derived to predict concerns, develop ideas,
and suggest policy not currently recognized. This book will be of
great interest to all students and scholars of military and
strategic studies and to those with an interest in space strategy
