The study examines how designing a force for the most-dangerous scenario affects the Air Force's ability to cooperate with the Army and conduct joint missions, specifically CAS. Tomorrow's fight is unknown, but a near certainty is that it will be a joint fight and therefore it is imperative for the Air Force to foster inter-service cooperation.
This study identifies the correlation between the quality of the U.S. president's relationship with the intelligence community and intelligence failures. This research also evaluates how the relationship changes over the course of a presidency in an effort to identify factors that contribute to a working relationship strong enough to mitigate the risk of intelligence failures.
A wartime tragedy leads to murder on the home front. Peter Brandt, the war-scarred journalist hero of Empty Places, returns in this story of greed, betrayal, and government secrets. Can Peter expose the truth without becoming another victim of the wartime tragedy?
Book 1 of the epic science fiction trilogy, The Chronotrace Sequence, this tense, original story follows one man's journey to recover his identity as he finds himself swept up into a conflict between a group of advanced scientists and the last remnants of humanity untouched by their experiments.
Desert Storm war veteran Linda Maye Adams shows the diversity of what war is like for the women who deploy in this collection of short stories and poetry.

The path to Interdependence between Conventional Forces (CF) and Special Forces (SF) grew out of the success and failure in combat and peacetime operations over the last three decades. Beginning with the catastrophic collision during Operation Eagle Claw to combined operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, interdependence has been a difficult process.
The monograph assesses the effectiveness of the surface-to-surface indirect fire systems available in achieving the capability requirements and identifies any shortfalls. Then the monograph assesses how the field artillery enables operational art and Unified Land Operations (ULO) through the evaluation of specific elements of operational art and tenets of ULO.
Whether purposefully or out of sheer coincidence, cyberspace operations have chartered a course strikingly similar to that of air operations in history, theory, and doctrine. Both grew out of scientific innovation, theorists were quick to apply both of the new technologies to the art of warfare.
