    Stifled Innovation? Developing Tomorrow's Leaders Today

    Stifled Innovation? Developing Tomorrow's Leaders Today Dr Leonard Wong Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "Dr. Leonard Wong examines how, despite the need to develop and grow innovative leaders for the Army’s future forces, the current system in the Army seems to be working against that vision. He argues that current levels of directed training events, dictated training procedures, and disruptions originating from higher echelons are having a detrimental effect on the development of innovation in today’s company commanders."

    Rapid Decisive Operations: An Assumptions-Based Critique

    Rapid Decisive Operations: An Assumptions-Based Critique Dr Antulio J Echevarria II Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "Technological innovation plays a paradoxical role in military transformation. With each problem it solves, technological innovation tends to introduce new challenges or complications. Operational concepts can partly reconcile these tensions by finding the optimal balance between technological strengths and weaknesses. In so doing, they perform two vital functions (integrating and stimulating) for military transformation."

    AC/RC Integration: Today's Success and Transformation's Challenge Dr Dallas D Owens Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "In the following monograph, Lieutenant Colonel Dallas Owens analyzes current integration programs and initiatives and evaluates them for their potential to resist transformation’s possible threat to AC/RC integration. His two-part analysis first addresses the continuity, logic, and effectiveness of the Army’s integration efforts and then turns to an examination of how historical experience with integration should direct future efforts."

    W(h)ither Corps?

    W(h)ither Corps? Dr D Robert Worley Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "Army transformation should not be a “one size fits all” process. Each of the Army’s surviving corps has a unique origin. Relevance to present and future conflict environments requires multiple destinations. Ultimately, separate transformations are required to move from distinct origins to diverse destinations."

  •  Army Transformation: A View from the U.S. Army War College

    Army Transformation: A View from the U.S. Army War College

    Army Transformation: A View from the U.S. Army War College Dr Williamson Murray Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "As the United States enters a new century, its army confronts the difficult problems associated with transformation in an uncertain world. Moreover, the strategic environment makes it entirely unclear where, or when, or for what strategic purposes U.S. ground forces will find themselves committed to battle in coming decades. Yet, both the strategic environment as well as the harsh lessons of the past have a direct bearing on why the Army has begun the processes of transformation."

  •  The Information Revolution and National Security

    The Information Revolution and National Security

    The Information Revolution and National Security Mr Thomas E Copeland Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "The current era has seen more rapid and extensive change than any time in human history. The profusion of information and the explosion of information technology is the driver, reshaping all aspects of social, political, cultural, and economic life. The effects of the information revolution are particularly profound in the realm of national security strategy. They are creating new opportunities for those who master them. The U.S. military, for instance, is exploring ways to seize information superiority during conflicts and thus gain decisive advantages over its opponents. But the information revolution also creates new security threats and vulnerabilities. No nation has made more effective use of the information revolution than the United States, but none is more dependent on information technology. To protect American security, then, military leaders and defense policymakers must understand the information revolution."

    Technology and the 21st Century Battlefield: Recomplicating Moral Life for the Statesman and the Soldier

    Technology and the 21st Century Battlefield: Recomplicating Moral Life for the Statesman and the Soldier COL Charles J Dunlap Jr Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "In this monograph, Air Force Colonel Charles Dunlap starts from the traditional American notion that technology might offer a way to decrease the horror and suffering of warfare. He points out that historically this assumption is flawed in that past technological advances, from gunpowder weapons to bombers, have only made warfare more—not less—bloody. With a relentless logic, Colonel Dunlap takes to task those who say that the Revolution in Military Affairs has the potential to make war less bloody."

    Nonlethality and American Land Power: Strategic Context and Operational Concepts

    Nonlethality and American Land Power: Strategic Context and Operational Concepts Prof Douglas C Lovelace Jr, Dr Steven Metz Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "Within the U.S. Army, this is a time of both excitement and challenge. As immense change takes place in the global security environment, American land power must be adapted to assure it can continue to protect and promote national interests into the 21st century. This requires the development and integration of a range of new technologies, concepts, and organizations. Among these, nonlethality—using armed force in a way that minimizes casualties—shows promise for specialized applications."

    Evolutionary Technology in the Current Revolution in Military Affairs: The Army Tactical Command and Control System

    Evolutionary Technology in the Current Revolution in Military Affairs: The Army Tactical Command and Control System Ms. Elizabeth A. Stanley Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "In this monograph, Ms. Elizabeth A. Stanley analyzes developments in the Army Tactical Command and Control System as a vehicle for assessing the U.S. Army's strategy for exploiting information age technologies. Her analysis will be of great value to those interested in several dimensions of military modernization, in particular whether we are amid a revolution in military affairs (RMA) or something less profound. If it is an RMA, then how well are we in the Army seizing the opportunities it presents?"

    The Strategist and the Web Revisited: An Updated Guide to Internet Resources

    The Strategist and the Web Revisited: An Updated Guide to Internet Resources LTC James Kievit, Dr Steven Metz Monograph by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "For analysts or planners attempting to craft appropriate, timely solutions to strategic problems, the ability to collect information rapidly and to evaluate its relevance and validity is a crucial skill. Computers linked via the Internet can offer timely access to millions of documents and files on a vast range of topics, and the number of documents available increases on a daily basis. But to make maximum use of the Internet as a research tool, researchers must understand it. And analysts trained in library, archive, and word-of-mouth research must learn where to look for salient electronic information."

Then it examines numerous Internet sources. From these it identifies both sites of current value to a strategic analyst, and those with the potential to become important resources after further development."

    The Technological Fix: Weapons and the Cost of War

    The Technological Fix: Weapons and the Cost of War Dr Alex Roland Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "A tremendous faith in technology is an abiding American characteristic. The idea that technology can be leveraged to make up for shortfalls in numbers–be those numbers of troops, weapons, or dollars–is as appealing as it is traditional. In the following pages, Dr. Roland examines three instances in which states turned to technology to drive military strategy: chariot warfare in the second millennium B.C., Greek fire in the first millennium A.D., and submarine warfare in the early 19th century. These cases, distinct in time, provide a fresh perspective on issues facing the Army as it molds itself into Force XXI"
