'From the debates over the content to the ways it was used in the field, Cassandra in Oz covers lessons that should be gleaned from years of global war and displays the American military as a learning organization.' -Military Technology Magazine "Crane has written a very scholarly and provocative book on modern war in the light of his experience in the post-9/11 period. He very intelligently shows that the meaning of war and the way it is fought have tremendously changed since 9/11 terrorist attacks. Cassandra in Oz is the result of his hands-on experience what have come to be known as asymmetric war. He sheds light on those dimensions of the asymmetric war which have remained hidden from other war historians. It should be a required reading for students and experts of modern asymmetric war." - The Washington Bookreview
