Abstract: This paper explores the consequences that might flow from a complete networking of all systems making up a military force. The impact of both the general thought pattern involved in Network Centric Warfare as well as of its specific recommendations upon a nation's ability to fight a war are discussed. The paper is intended to provide a balance to the often-exaggerated claims made by proponents of Network Centric Warfare concerning the advantages of this way of fighting a war.
