    Eisenhower as Strategist: The Coherent Use of Military Power in War and Peace

    Eisenhower as Strategist: The Coherent Use of Military Power in War and Peace Dr Steven Metz Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "The facts of Dwight D. Eisenhower's military career are well-known. This does not mean, however, that there is nothing to be gained from a careful examination of his experience. Few if any American officers performed a wider array of strategic functions--he was a staff planner in the War Department, wartime commander of a massive coalition force, peacetime Chief of Staff, and Supreme Allied Commander in Europe. Eisenhower was directly involved in a number of major transitions including the building of the wartime American Army, its demobilization following the war, and the resuscitation of American military strength during the initial years of the cold war."

    General George C. Marshall: Strategic Leadership and the Challenges of Reconstituting the Army, 1939-41

    General George C. Marshall: Strategic Leadership and the Challenges of Reconstituting the Army, 1939-41 COL John T Nelson II Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "In this connection, the study of General George C. Marshall, covering his pre-World War II service as Army Chief of Staff, 1939-41, is as inspirational as it is illustrative. Marshall began his tour of duty at a time when the Army was isolated politically and institutionally, when it was profoundly undermanned and poorly equipped, and when the prospects for improving this dismal situation were far from encouraging. In the ensuing 2 1/2 years, the Army's posture changed dramatically for the better, largely through Marshall's Herculean efforts to prepare for the kind of war he saw threatening on the horizon. In effect, he "reconstituted" the Army. It is no exaggeration to say that Marshall enabled America to enter the war with a distinct "running start" in terms of military preparedness-- something this country had never before succeeded in doing."

  •  Alternative World Scenarios for a New Order of Nations

    Alternative World Scenarios for a New Order of Nations

    Alternative World Scenarios for a New Order of Nations Dr Charles W Taylor Book by the US Army War College, Strategic Studies Institute "This futures study has four objectives. The first is to establish a standard method for Department of the Army (DA) agencies to plan for the midrange to the long-range future through the use of an alternative scenario approach. The second is to describe four future alternative world scenarios (environments) that are plausible, realistic, and appropriate for Army and organizational planning into the 21st century. The third is to revise and update the scenarios to bring them into alignment both with world changes that have occurred since they were published and with the author's recent forecasts. The fourth objective is to adjust the forecasts inherent in the scenarios to accommodate plausible future environments."
