ABSTRACT
Whatever the problem, the nuclear age demands above all a clarification of doctrine. All the difficult choices of the nuclear period presuppose a doctrinal power before they can find a technical one. This article examines the role that strategic doctrine plays in American security. History demonstrates that superiority in strategic doctrine has often been the cause of victory as has superiority in resources and technology. History has shown victories not of resources but of strategic doctrine: the ability to break the framework which had come to be taken for granted and to present the antagonist with contingencies which he had never even considered. In its absence a power will be constantly surprised by events.
