STANDING FAST : GERMAN DEFENSIVE DOCTRINE : ON THE RUSSIAN FRONT DURING ! WORLD WAR II REWAR TO MARCH 1943  

Correctly foreseeing the nature of a future war is the most critical problem confronting military leaders in peacetime.

COHESION THE HUMAN ELEMENT IN COMBAT  

THAT MEN too often find themselves fighting wars is a depressing commentary on both history and contemporary life. That many of these same men endure situations where they can be killed or kill others is a perplexing fact of human behavior.

Darryl Henderson says something, however, that is both new and ...Read more >

William E. DePuy was likely the most important figure in the recovery of the United States Army from its collapse after the defeat in Vietnam. That is a rather large claim, and it suggests a precedence over a number of other distinguished officers, both his contemporaries and successors. But it is a claim that can be justified by the test of the "null hypothesis": Could the Army that conducted the Gulf War be imagined without the actions of General DePuy and those he instructed and inspired? ...Read more >
