One of the concepts for Adaptation is finding satire in war, to that end I scoured the web and found something worthy. That is a field manual about the US Army's First Earth Battalion, a 1970's unit of "warrior monks" founded by an officer by the name of Jim Channon, a veteran of the Vietnam War. Jim Channon states that the soldiers of the First Earth Battalion serve Earth and humanity as a whole.
The concept behind the First Earth Battalion are soldiers who use "paranormal" abilities and a quasi-spiritual, natural approach to combat (Ethical Combat) in order to resovle conflict. The key idea is emphasis on the human individual and their abilities to reach out to others.
Actual military tactics are included but take the form of peaceful strategies, for instance "ethical commando raids".
It sounds like the product of what would happen if the US Army's psychological warfare leaders constantly got high.
