    i'm doing a paper on how the evolution of computer technology has changed our conception of fighting wars, and i was hoping some people would be able to direct me towards some books or websites that could help me. any range of years is appropriate, as long as computer technology is involved. thanks very much for any help.

    going on "as long as computer technology is involved."

    several topics. Changed our conception about going to war? (or) uses in war?

    You have to do a little searching but it is one of the best sites for the discussion of military strategy, tactics, weapons, personnel, and diplomacy. Looks at current events, current technology in an historical context.

    thanks for all the links so far, very informative. guys can chime in here too [​IMG] as far as the official topic, that is up to me. the class is entitled "social and ethical aspects of computing", and i picked the war topic, so anything goes as long as it relates to using technology/computers to fight wars. thanks again.
