Theoretical frameworks for studying battles

Hello to all. Apologies if you've seen me ask this same thing in other venues.

I'm looking for recommendations on theoretical frameworks for studying battles or campaigns, preferably recent work. The field has moved away from drums and bugle campaign studies over the decades (though of course they still exist) as we've come to ask different questions about war, warfare, and the military besides "why was this commander great/poor?" and "was this battle decisive?" All of which is fine and valuable, as there is so much more.

Journal ToC: Feminist Critique. Special Issue. 5 (2022)

Feminist Critique: East European Journal of Feminist and Queer Studies

Feminist Critique publishes papers on a wide range of topics that have, however, strong feminist and/or queer-theoretical positionality. We consider feminism broader than merely debates on women's rights and gender equality, and we see queer theory as more than a discussion on LGBT.
