Description

A brief review of the key forums within this edition of Parameters are:

  • The first forum, War Colleges: A Debate, concerns the effectiveness of America’s war colleges. In “Taking the War Colleges from Good to Great,” Richard Hooker Jr. argues the country’s war colleges do not compare favorably in either rigor, admissions standards, academic programs, or competition to other professional schools. In “Making War Colleges Better,” Richard Lacquement Jr. takes the opposite point of view, claiming America’s war colleges can always improve, but generally have been quite successful.
  • Our second forum, Lessons from Afghanistan: Part II, features three articles discussing the lessons some of America’s allies and coalition partners drew from the campaigns in Afghanistan.
  • The third forum, Strategic Lieutenants, examines what several of NATO’s military academies are doing to prepare their prospective officers to function in the complex strategic environment of today.
