U.S. military service a reference handbook by Cynthia Ann Watson( )
8 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 1,629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The end of the Cold War ushered in a new kind of war that has already made conventional tactics and strategy obsolete. How has the U.S. military responded? In U.S. Military Service: A Reference Handbook, Cynthia Watson, professor of strategy at the National War College, analyzes the major issues that are reshaping the military in the era of global terrorism: problems of recruitment, urban warfare, effective use of electronic media, and rebuilding failed states. She also examines the unprecedented policy of relinquishing military duties to the for-profit sector, which has occurred in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Through a combination of detailed analysis and broad overview, the work shows how the U.S. military is quickly transforming itself into a leaner, more agile force

Nation-building and stability operations a reference handbook by Cynthia Ann Watson( )

"Addressing the range of nation-building experiences and concerns in the United States and its allies, Watson opens with a discussion of Somalia, Haiti, and Southeastern European experiences during the 1990s. She then shifts to a discussion of the more recent lessons from Iraq and Afghanistan since the beginning of the global War on Terrorism. An examination of the growing emphasis within the U.S. government focused on the education officers at the flag rank in combined, joint, and multinational aspects of military activities that form the basis of nation-building underscores the pace of changes taking place today."

Explores the Geographic Unified Commands: U.S. European Command at Patch Barracks in Stuttgart-Vaihingen, Germany; U.S. Pacific Command at Camp Smith, Hawaii; U.S. Southern Command at Miami, Florida; U.S. Central Command at Tampa, Florida; U.S. Northern Command at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado; and U.S. Africa Command at Kelley Barracks in Stuttgart-Mo╠łhringen, Germany. These six unified commands form the basis of U.S. presence and activities around the globe. This volume uses unclassified, publicly available information to describe and analyze the unified geographic, or regional, commands. Congressional testimony, combatant command websites on the World Wide Web, discussions with civilians and officers who have served in the commands, and the few books on the topic form the research base, along with open source history of the creation of the Goldwater-Nichols Military Reform Act of 1986, as well as its predecessor and successor legislation
Stability, security, reconstruction, and transition operations a guide to the issues by Cynthia Ann Watson( )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The decisions that led to the nation-building efforts of the post-Cold War world resulted from both the end of the bipolar global environment and the 9/11 attacks caused by terrorists provided refuge in states without effective governance. At the same time, the United States also has a historical thread of trying to build better societies for the benefit of all. At times, the noble cause of providing reconstruction or humanitarian assistance has proven to be a shining light that the United States has shown to the world; the decisions taken in the hours and days following the devastating December 26, 2004 tsunami did much to raise the view of the United States in a world that had become skeptical as a result of the war in Iraq over the two prior years. Sadly, the November 1992 decision to provide food and humanitarian aid, which lead to taking sides in the clan warfare characterizing Somalia, proved heartbreaking for the nation as it watched U.S. Army personnel dragged through the streets of the capital city of Mogadishu on October 3rd of the following year. This volume considers the decisions taken around these actions over the past two plus decades. We now use the terms stability operations, security operations, reconstruction operations, and transition operations (SSRTOs) to describe these different goals more accurately. The volume establishes the primary documents, speeches, and other products of the policy-making community, and then provides analysis of what was occurring and the significance of the individual decisions. It also highlights the personnel and tries to shed light on their motivations, concerns, and the ramifications. This volume concludes with a descriptive list of resources in the field of stability, security, reconstruction, and transition operations
