A monograph which discusses some of the more important tactical and materiel innovations in Vietnam from the viewpoint of the infantry division commander. Some discussion is devoted to the realization that traditional methods of collecting, analyzing, and disseminating intelligence information were inadequate to the needs of the Vietnam War. Describes the development of acoustic, magnetic, and seismic sensors, platforms for airborne reconnaissance, and surveillance and observation devices—forerunners of the automated battlefield.
