    AY17 Defense Management Course Directive Prof Louis G Yuengert Course Directive by the US Army War College "Successful warfighting and other military operations do not occur without well-trained, properly equipped, and doctrinally sound forces.

    Past is Prologue: Abroad in Syria with the Ghosts of Iraq

    Past is Prologue: Abroad in Syria with the Ghosts of Iraq Dr David Alpher PKSOI Paper by US Army War College, Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute "This paper presents a framework that planners can use to speed the planning process and improve traction. R&S contexts require the ability to function at a high level within conditions of ambiguity, violence and chaos. Using past lessons as principles rather than fixed points on a checklist speeds implementation and guides efforts from a stronger and more flexible starting point. As governance reform is a core thrust within US intervention frameworks, this document argues for improving future operations through a paradigm shift away from top-down R&S interventions."
