Summary/Abstract: Military geniuses like Hannibal, Caesar, Suvorov or Napoleon proved to the whole world how relatively small armies prevailed through complex battle strategies, ingenuity and courage, through scientific and military knowledge that can make a difference. The technological progress made in the last hundreds of years, based on technical-scientific discoveries, has led the armed struggle to such a high level that technological supremacy, the ratio of forces and military technique are extremely important in the assumption of a military conflict. However, combining conventional resources of combat with modern ones, the use of combined forms and methods of combat, are still issues of general interest, which require adaptable strategies and not least the ingenuity, flair and exuberance of leaders. The impact of new technologies on the military field still remains a dilemma that will probably never be clarified, precisely because of the constant challenges, which are increasingly complex and different.
