What Exactly Is Jointness? ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The last thirteen of my thirty-plus years as a military officer have been spent in joint duty assignments. For six years I have actually taught the essentials of jolntness at the intermediate and senior levels of professional military education (PME), an experience which has provided many opportunities to discuss the nature of jointness with students. VVhat has come out of those discussions is that jointness is understanding broadly what your fellow soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines bring to the battle and trusting them to do it right and well-and their feeling the same way about you. All frills and lobbying aside, the essence of jointness is understanding and trust. As General Colin Powell stated in the first edition of Joint Pub 1, "jolnt warfare is team warfare." But what about seamlessness, synergy, joint doctrine, interoperability, and all the other buzzwords? Let's examine some of the more prevalent ones

The Military in the Post-Vietnam ERA: A Search for Relevance ( Book )
1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
From April 1917 to September 1945, the American military establishment evolved into a contradiction in the American polity. After August 1945 the contradiction had become an aberration as well. It was an aberration because it possessed (though it did not know quite what to do with) a destructive apparatus that threatened the planned extinction of mankind, and it was a contradiction because it endeavored to perpetate and indeed to secure the gap between American ideals and American political practice which it as an institution had come to represent. Ironically, it simultaneously became the instrument of force of the sole nation on earth capable of guaranteeing--with any degree of certitude--the protection and continuation of human freedom and dignity as both a creed and a way of life. How this difficult and paradoxical circumstance can be defined, analyzed, dealt with and accommodated within the American military establishment itself, is the subject of this brief work. (Author)
