You ought really read everything Liddell Hart wrote. They are no nonsense literature, which is also very well written and easy to read. Because the technology will be different (seeing how you said your fictional story takes place in the future) real strategy is what you'd be best off studying. For the equipment, anyone can go and read the latest scientific ...
