This book evaluates the origins as well as the historical advancements of the War Room conception. Additionally, a critical analysis of the War Room's philosophical aspects, mediality, spatiality, and temporality is provided.
Originally, War Rooms were command centers for the military domain, primarily set up to optimise decision-making. The advancements of this historical conception are highly relevant, because they serve as role models for command centers in current politics and business. Even with this relevance, the topic of this book has hardly been covered until now.
This book consists of three main parts. The first part focuses on the historical development of the idea of the commander that is based on a four-part typology; ingenious, technocratic, technical-psychological, and informatised commander. The second part cites three historically important examples - Schlieffenplan, Cabinet War Rooms, and White House Situations Room - that each correspond with one of the three latter types of commanders. The last part offers an analysis on the previously elaborated levels of the commander as they pertain to the mediaphilosphical aspects.
