Abstract
Since its introduction more than half a century ago, Lanchester's theory of combat has undergone considerable revision and expansion. This thesis presents a consolidation and a grouping by subject of the significant contributions to this theory which have appeared in the literature in recent years, with emphasis on the period since 1964, when a thorough "state of the art" summary article was published by Dolansky. The important results of each notable effort are described.
