  • Improving the Effectiveness of Distributed Learning 2006

    Susan G. Straus, Jolene Galegher, Michael G. Shanley, Joy S. Moini

    The U.S. Army is pursuing an ambitious plan to convert many of its courses to distributed learning (DL). This report reviews the state of research on learning in DL and presents recommendations for (1) a research agenda for DL, (2) methodological strategies to improve DL research, and (3) policies to support DL design, implementation, and evaluation. These recommendations can help the Army use DL to realize its vision of transforming training.


  • Army Medical Department Transformation 2006

    David E. Johnson, Gary Cecchine, Jerry M. Sollinger

    A series of Army Medical Command workshops assessed the effect of the Future Force doctrine on the Health Service Support system’s ability to deliver medical care on the battlefield. The authors summarize these assessments and present conclusions based on the scenarios and the data gathered during the workshops.

  • Assessing the Value of U.S. Army International Activities 2006

    Jefferson P. Marquis, Richard E. Darilek, Jasen J. Castillo, Cathryn Quantic Thurston, Anny Wong, Cynthia Huger, Andrea Mejia, Jennifer D. P. Moroney, Brian Nichiporuk, Brett Steele

    This report presents a framework for assessing U.S. Army International Activities (AIA). It also provides a matrix of eight AIA “ends,” derived from top-level national and Army guidance, and eight AIA “ways,” which summarize the various capabilities inherent in AIA programs. In addition, the report describes the new online AIA Knowledge Sharing System (AIAKSS) that is being used to solicit programmatic and assessment data from AIA officials in the Army’s Major Commands.

  • Human Resource Management and Army Recruiting 2006

    James N. Dertouzos, Steven Garber

    U.S. Army Recruiting Command is faced with the challenge of ensuring that the flow of qualified volunteers is adequate to meet future active-duty accession requirements. This report documents research methods, findings, and policy conclusions from a project analyzing human resource management options for improving recruiting production. It details research designed to develop new insights to help guide future recruiter management policies.

  • Joint Paths to the Future Force 2006

    David E. Johnson, Peter A. Wilson, Richard E. Darilek, Laurinda L. Rohn

    Describes and analyzes a wargame cosponsored by Joint Forces Command and the United States Army that focused on identifying the concepts and capabilities required to counteract an adversary who, having lost most of his conventional capability, seeks victory through a combination of protracted, unconventional operations and use of WMD. The report identifies the wargame’s scenario, assumptions, central questions and objectives, study issues, and essential elements of analysis.

  • Pacification in Algeria, 1956-1958 2006

    David Galula

    When Algerian nationalists launched a rebellion against French rule in November 1954, France was forced to cope with a varied and adaptable Algerian strategy. In this volume, originally published in 1963, David Galula reconstructs the story of his highly successful command at the height of the rebellion. This groundbreaking work, with a new foreword by Bruce Hoffman, remains relevant to present-day counterinsurgency operations.

  • Something Old, Something New 2006

    Henry A. Leonard, J Michael Polich, Jeffrey Peterson, Ronald E. Sortor, Craig Moore

    Changes in the world over the past two decades have created a dynamic situation — volatile, unpredictable, and novel in many respects — making the conduct of military operations more complex and varied than in the past. This report examines the nature of demands on Army officers in the contemporary operating environment and their implications for leader development. How will the Army prepare its future leaders for the new demands that will inevitably be placed on them?
