schema:description"This book offers a detailed examination of the professional military education (PME) system in the United States, from a critical insider's perspective. The mission of America's war colleges is to educate senior military officers in both ways of war and defense of peace. But are these colleges doing the best job possible in carrying out that mission? Military education faces many demands, including a lack of preparation by students, uneven quality of faculty, and confusion over the curriculum. Many officers attend resident programs at the war colleges against the career advice of their leadership, despite the fact that they are virtually guaranteed graduation after less than a year of study, while others do their best to avoid it entirely. As the professional military education system has come under increasing scrutiny and criticism, some have even called for closing the war colleges. That answer, however, does not serve the United States well, especially in a complex, globalized environment, where military leaders need the best specialized education to prepare them for their future challenges. This volume examines the system, how it is perpetuated, and why it is imperative that it is fixed."@en
