I'd concur that I don't think you can suggest that the 'military revolution' caused the industrial revolution. I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'military revolution' - but if you're referring to the Napoleonic system (the levee-en-masse, war paying for war, the use of war as 'politics by other means') then it's root cause is the significant paradigm shift caused by the French Revolution.
A source may help: it's old (published 1962) and... ideologically dubious (i.e. Marxist) and therefore needs to read with a questioning mind. I'm referring to Eric Hobsbawms Age of Revolution.
The basic argument is (if I've understood it right) that the conditions for an industrial revolution appear primarily in britain because of specific local occurrences which simply did not occur elsewhere, in China nor in Europe. However the 'launch point' is primarily only in the textile industry until the development of Railways in the 1830's, and its the railways that kick-started the development of 'heavy' metalwork industries.
Only in Britain was there, for example, a systematic process that moved workers away from the land and into the 'free' (i.e. mobile) system (the enclosure movement). There was a functioning trade system that moved raw materials (cotton from India or the Americas) to the UK and a commodity and a process that delivered increasing amounts of profits from the transformation of the raw material into manufactured goods (cotton textiles) - and a rapidly increasing population fuelled by improvements in farming (crop rotation, and above all, the potato) that provided a market for cheaper goods.
These conditions were simply not present in France - nor China. Primarily this was because the overall result of the French Revolution - which Hobsbawm lucidly notes was a middle class revolution - was the creation of a national class of petit-bourgouise, rather than a 'free' proletariat and a capitalist middle-class. What the revolution did do, in respecxt of the industrial revolution - was to emphasise those elements of the enlightment thought that applied to the middle classes. These - promotion by merit; a use for science and knowledge; discussion and democratic debate - were not too incompatible with the values of the emerging british middle classes (the Radicals) - utlitarianism, nonconformism, self-improvement.
As a result it was these strands that created the 'military revolution' I assume you mean - not the other way round.
