Combat Pair: The Evolution of Air Force-Navy Integration in Strike Warfare

Combat Pair: The Evolution of Air Force-Navy Integration in Strike Warfare

By Benjamin S. Lambeth et al.

Paperback • 128 pages • ISBN: 978-0-8330-4209-5 List Price: $22.00 Discounted Web Price: $19.80

The U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Navy have developed exceptional cross-service harmony during their conduct of integrated strike operations since the first Persian Gulf War in 1991. This assessment of air and naval cooperation makes clear that each service should consider the other a natural ally in the roles and resources arena and in providing mutual support in the achievement of joint strike-warfare goals.

Preparing the Army for Stability Operations: Doctrinal and Interagency Issues

Preparing the Army for Stability Operations: Doctrinal and Interagency Issues

By Thomas S. Szayna et al.

Paperback • 276 pages • ISBN: 978-0-8330-4190-6 List Price: $31.50 Discounted Web Price: $28.35

A great deal of effort has been aimed at revising the Army’s approach to the planning and conduct of stabilization, security, transition, and reconstruction (SSTR) operations. The primary emphasis of the changes has been on ensuring a common U.S. strategy, as opposed to fostering a collection of individual departmental and agency efforts or mobilizing and involving all available U.S. government assets in an effort. Using a template to assess the extent of progress in building collaborative, interagency capacity for SSTR operations, the authors find that some elements essential to the success of the process are not yet in place and provide a series of recommendations on which the Army can act to advance the interagency process.


Building Partner Capabilities for Coalition Operations

By Jennifer D. P. Moroney et al.

Ongoing operations and emerging mission requirements place a heavy burden on Army resources, resulting in capability gaps that the Army is unable to fill by itself. This monograph identifies ways to fill those gaps, including building appropriate capabilities in allies and partner armies through focused security cooperation, and provides recommendations for the Army to focus its efforts in support of joint requirements.

Paperback • 122 pages ISBN: 978-0-8330-4211-8 List Price: $22.00 Discounted Web Price: $19.80


Advancing the U.S. Air Force's Force-Development Initiative

By S. Craig Moore et al.

A mismatch in the late 1990s between the qualifications needed for key general officer positions and the backgrounds of available candidates stimulated an extensive U.S. Air Force effort to improve the development of future senior leaders. This monograph summarizes the force development initiative’s history and efforts to improve its efficiency and effectiveness throughout the Air Force.

Paperback • 56 pages ISBN: 978-0-8330-4012-1 List Price: $20.00 Discounted Web Price: $18.00
