The lessons taken from the Civil War led to a reliance on an application of overwhelming force, which in this brief has been called the Civil War Concept. The enemy armies and population were seen as centers of gravity that had to be attacked. Especially seeing the enemy population as a center of gravity was different from previous military thinking.

The Civil War Concept, the reliance on overwhelming superiority in manpower and material, continued to influence military thinking during World War I and World War II when the overwhelming industrial capabilities of the United States and the superior manpower of the Allied powers eventually overwhelmed the Axis powers.
As nuclear weapons came to be a defining element of warfare, a new kind of war arose – limited wars. The aim of limited wars was to achieve political aims without risking escalating the conflict to a state of nuclear war, therefore the aims and resources committed to such confl icts were restricted.
 
This Army Concept and the way that the US military refused to accept the nature of the war in Vietnam were the reasons for the US defeat in Vietnam.
