Description

This publication assesses the Long War, now in its 14th year. Forged in the fires of the 9/11 attacks, the war includes campaigns against al Qaeda, major conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, and operations in the Horn of Africa, the Republic of the Philippines, and globally, in the air and on the sea. The authors herein treat only the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq, the largest U.S. efforts. It's primary objective is intended to provide information and guidance to future senior officers, their advisors, and other national security decision makers.

By derivation, it’s also a book for students in joint professional military education courses, which will qualify them to work in the field of strategy and with military-oriented civilians. While the book tends to focus on strategic decisions and developments of land wars among the people, it acknowledges that the status of the United States as a great power and the strength of its ground forces depend in large measure on the dominance of the U.S. Navy and U.S. Air Force in their respective domains.

ITEM AVAILABLE DATE 03/28/17.

Audience

This would be a valuable resource for military senior officers, military advisors, national security personnel, and professors of military history and warfare.

Reviews

Rated 4.25 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.com!

Craig Lawrence rated it 5 stars and said: "A first class analysis of what the US should learn from its (long) interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq. Hooker and Collins are the main contributors (and editors) with experts contributing chapters that relate to their particular fields. It is well written in a crisp and accessible style and, importantly, pulls few punches in identifying what could have been done better. In sum: a well researched and valuable critique which I found particularly useful as a source for a booklet I have just written on strategy formulation and strategic leadership. Strongly recommended."
