Publications & Analysis

Each year the U.S. Army War College Press (USAWC Press) publishes a large number of studies, conference reports, and book-length volumes on a spectrum of issues central to U.S. national security. While USAWC Press analysts write the majority of these publications, many external authors contribute to our study program as well. The works included here are  solely the ideas of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the official position of the U.S. Army or U.S. Army War College

practitioner's corner

The faculty of the US Army War College includes a carefully selected mix of men and women with deep experience in military and national security strategy. To provide a venue for their analysis of the challenges and best practices of strategic leadership and make it available to the students and faculty of USAWC and other institutions in the professional military educational system, the Strategic Studies Institute has created this "practitioners' corner."

For over a decade, the USAWC has published the Key Strategic Issues List (KSIL) to inform students, faculty, and external research associates of strategic topics requiring research and analysis. A subset of these topics, designated as Chief of Staff of the Army special interest topics, consists of those which demand special attention. The USAWC will address these as Integrated Research Projects and other research efforts. The USAWC in coordination with Headquarters Department of the Army (HQDA), major commands throughout the Army, and the joint and interagency community have developed the remaining Army Priorities for Strategic Analysis.
