A Council on Foreign Relations Book. Micah Zenko is a Fellow for Conflict Prevention in the Center for Preventive Action at the Council on Foreign Relations. Zenko's analysis of the limited use of force is brilliant and timely. He breaks new ground in moving beyond Cold War thinking to assess the efficacy of specific military measures in a unipolar environment. This work is a major step in sharpening the application of US military force to achieve political aims abroad.

When confronted with a persistent foreign policy problem that threatens U.S. interests, and that cannot be adequately addressed through economic or political pressure, American policymakers and opinion formers have increasingly resorted to recommending the use of limited military force: that is, enough force to attempt to resolve the problem while minimizing U.S. military deaths, local civilian casualties, and collateral damage. These recommendations have ranged from the bizarre―such as a Predator missile strike to kill Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, or the assassination of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez―to the unwise―the preemptive bombing of North Korean ballistic missile sites―to the demonstrably practical―air raids into Bosnia and Somalia, and drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan. However, even though they have been a regular feature of America's uses of military force through four successive administrations, the efficacy of these "Discrete Military Operations" (DMOs) remains largely unanalyzed, leaving unanswered the important question of whether or not they have succeeded in achieving their intended military and political objectives. In response, Micah Zenko examines the thirty-six DMOs undertaken by the US over the past 20 years, in order to discern why they were used, if they achieved their objectives, and what determined their success or failure. In the process, he both evaluates U.S. policy choices and recommends ways in which limited military force can be better used in the future. The insights and recommendations made by Zenko will be increasingly relevant to making decisions and predictions about the development of American grand strategy and future military policy.

Mr. Zenko's analysis is eye-opening. This book presents an extremely detailed and obviously well-researched analysis of what is a missing yet key part of the public understanding on our use of force abroad: what he refers to as the use of "discrete military operations", or the use of limited force in circumstances other than the conventional understanding of military objectives (e.g., war, regime-change, etc.) The book examines case after case of these operations during numerous administrations since the Cold War. You get the quick sense that despite the less than outstanding record of success of these operations, which could be anything from airstrikes to rescue operations, their favored use in many occasions is often motivated by factors other than military objective. The book educates the reader about the political and other realities surrounding the decisions to use these tactics, filling a current void in the public debate. Highly recommended.

This book provides the foundation for what I feel is going to be a growing debate among policy makers and the military. The case studies provide in-depth analysis of why political actors decided the way they did and looks to analyze the impact of their actions. Highly recommend this book for folks interested in confronting the foreign policy challenges of the 21st century.
