Heh, yes, a good book. I must say this is the first time I have seen a major military contractor go down this route when designing a defense system.
I guess it makes as much sense as having your own people work out everything, at least in an early phase.
Still, a novel approach.
There are many armchair Napoleons out there, and here is their chance.
All those hours invested into C&C and StarCraft - not so wasted after all.

I saw this worked out in that movie Ender's Game. You send in swarms of basically expendable attack ships to stress and weaken an enemy's defenses, punch through a hole, then hit them with the big killer to finish them off. Works best if you have a lot of expendables. Like human soldiers in WWII.
