In short, qualitative change in the direction of defensiveness is the way to stability, favourable feedback and arms reductions; and vice versa. e. it will produce mutual defensive superiority. Thus suppose country A replaces forces that have a strong offensive capability with forces that have a strong defensive capability, whilst country B keeps its forces unchanged. ) The same arguments of course apply if we start from positions other than balanced all-round forces. e. 'all-round' superiority, so that it has its opponent at its mercy.
We shall make the strong, worst-case assumptions, common to most reasoning about nuclear strategy, that the other side is relentlessly hostile and so are you; that you seek to intimidate him so as to stop him from seeking to make gains, often of an unspecified nature, by challenging and testing your will to retaliate; and you seek to make gains from him. Suppose first that each side could only use all its nuclear weapons or none: it could not go in for gradual escalation - an assumption which, though made for purposes of simplification, is not wholly unrealistic, since it is uncertain whether the use of nuclear weapons could or would be controlled and gradual, once it started.
How the Germans saw the problem was explained by Schlieffen: 24 An Essay on Strategy Germany has the advantage of lying between France and Russia and of separating these allies. It would lose this advantage if it were to divide its army and thus be inferior in numbers to each single opponent. Germany must strive, therefore, first, to strike down one of the allies while the other is kept occupied; but then, when the one antagonist is conquered, it must, by exploiting its railways, bring a superiority of numbers to the other theatre of war, which will also destroy the other enemy.
