This chapter discusses networks and netwar. Netwar is purely a military homonym of cyberwar, a parallel concept about information-age conflict at the less military, low-intensity, more social end of the spectrum. It resonated with the surety that the information revolution favored the rise of network forms of organization, doctrine, and strategy. Through netwar, numerous dispersed small groups using the latest communications technologies could act conjointly across great distances.

Keywords: netwar; networks; military homonym; information-age conflict; information revolution; communication technology
