Description

There have been innumerable studies on civil-military cooperation—or lack thereof—in complex operations. The subject, however, has not been addressed in a single volume aimed at scholars and diplomats as well as warriors. Unity of Mission does just that. The book offers unique insights by soldiers, AID workers, nongovernmental organizations, and others with on the ground experience. The essays provide a rich, diverse, and candid commentary about what worked and what didn’t work. This book will be enormously useful for anyone assigned to a military command, an embassy, or any international mission.
