A section of a proposed book on military planning in an uncertain world. The present study (Part I) discusses such aspects of the techniques of systems analysis as designing the offense and defense, probabilistic considerations, and the two-sided war. Other parts of the book will deal with the techniques of operations research and philosophical and methodological comments. The material has been gathered from a series of lectures given for the RAND Systems Analysis course.
