Chapter 6 analyzes the thinking of Henry Eccles, one of America’s underappreciated military intellectuals. It describes his life and his "America," which again was the golden age of the middle class. It discusses how Eccles and his colleagues led a counterrevolution against the revolt of Brodie and the other strategy intellectuals. Eccles stressed rigorous examination of all principles and concepts. This chapter also explains Eccles’s model of war’s nature, which, though largely traditional, included traces of the modern model and incorporated a broader perspective that saw war not just as an extension of human competitiveness but of competition among social groups.
Chapter 7 analyzes the ideas of Joseph Caldwell Wylie especially his theory of strategy as control. It describes his life as well as his practitioner perspective, which served to inform his theory of strategy and his idea that war is a discontinutation of policy as much as it is a continuation of it. This chapter also discusses his contribution to the traditional model of war’s nature, which he helped to enlarge.
