In Finding the Target, Frederick Kagan describes the three basic transformations within the U.S. military since Vietnam. The issue of transformation leads Kagan to Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's vision of a new military; the conduct of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars; and the disconnect between grand strategic visions such as the Bush Doctrine's idea of preemption and the under funding of military force structures that are supposed to achieve such goals.
