  • Adrian-Robert GHEORGHE

Abstract

The conditions in which the armed confrontations took place have always had a major importance on the outcome of military operations and this aspect has been observed and capitalized by specialists and military leaders. A realistic understanding of the existing conditions, doubled by a correct vision of the transformed confrontation environment that must be reached, makes the chance of success substantially inclined in favor of those who prepare in detail and in advance for the battles that are barely visible today.
