The Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps : 100 years of service to the nation, 1916-2016

November 8, 2017
Daugherty, Leo J., author.
[United States] : [GPO] ; [2017?]
110 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 27 x 30 cm
Shipping list no.: 2018-0004-S.
One hundred years ago President Woodrow Wilson signed the National Defense Act of 1916 establishing the Reserve Officers' Training Corps. Throughout the ensuring century, the United States and its Army faced numerous challenges both at home and overseas. Wars were fought against despotic foreign regimes, periodic economic downturns were endured, and U.S.-led peacekeeping operations contributed to enhanced global stability. Making a critical difference during all these times of peril were men and women who received their start in Army ROTC. History has proven those who participate in the program develop leadership and managerial skills that last a lifetime. This volume traces the proud history of Army ROTC from its 19th Century origins through the contemporary period. With over 600,000 graduates to its credit, Army ROTC arguably can be said to have had a lasting impact on virtually all elements of American society. Among its graduates may be found three former secretaries of state and a sitting Supreme Court justice. Few other American institutions can boast of similar success. The challenges currently facing America's Army are far different than those it had to address when the ROTC program first came into existence. But as Army ROTC enters its second century, it is well-positioned to continue to provide the talented leaders our Army and nation needs.--Inside jacket flap.

The Mexican Expedition, 1916-1917

Prieto examines the operation led by General John Pershing to search for, capture, and destroy Francisco "Pancho" Villa and his revolutionary army in northern Mexico in the year prior to the United States' entry into World War I. This campaign marked one of the final times cavalry was used on a large scale, and it was one of the first to use trucks and airplanes in the field. While Pershing's troops failed to capture Villa, both Regular Army troops and National Guardsmen stationed on the border gained valuable experience in these new technologies.

Harold Brown : offsetting the Soviet military challenge 1977-1981

September 15, 2017

Washington, DC : Historical Office, Office of the Secretary of Defense, 2017.
xix, 815 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
Shipping list no.: 2017-0037-S.
"Secretary of Defense Harold Brown worked to counter the Soviet Union's growing military strength during the administration of President Jimmy Carter. The Soviet Union of the Carter years came closest to matching the United States in strategic power than at any other point in the Cold War. By most reckonings, the Kremlin surpassed the West in conventional arms and forces in Central Europe, posing a threat to NATO. In response, Brown--a nuclear physicist--advocated more technologically advanced weapon systems but faced Carter's efforts to reign in the defense budget. Backed by the JCS, the national security adviser, and key members of Congress, Brown persuaded Carter to increase the defense budget for the last two years of his term. The secretary championed the development and production of new weapons such as stealth aircraft, precision-guided bombs, and cruise missiles. These and other initiatives laid a solid foundation for the much-acclaimed Ronald Reagan defense revolution that actually began under Carter. The book also highlights Brown's policymaking efforts and his influence on President Carter as the administration responded to international events such as the Middle East peace process, the Iran revolution and hostage crisis, the rise of militant Islam, negotiations with the Soviets over arms limitations, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, and the creation of a security framework for the Persian Gulf region. Other topics cover policy toward Latin America and Africa. The book is also a history of the Defense Department, including the continual development of the All-Volunteer Force and the organizational changes that saw improved policy formulation and acquisition decisions."--Provided by publisher.

"Joining the Great War, April 1917-April 1918, by Eric B. Setzekorn, is the next installment in the U.S. Army Campaigns of World War I series, chronicling the first year of the American involvement in World War I. It briefly summarizes the prewar U.S. Army, the initial American reaction to the outbreak of war in Europe in 1914, and the factors that led to the U.S. declaration of war in April 1917. The narrative then examines how the U.S. Army transformed itself from a small constabulary force into a mass, industrialized army capable of engaging in modern warfare. The author covers stateside mobilization and training, the formation of the American Expeditionary Forces, and the slow buildup of American forces in France and concludes with U.S. soldiers helping to blunt the first phase of the 1918 German Spring Offensive"--Publisher's web site.

Foreword / General Joseph F. Dunford, Jr. -- Preface / Major General Frederick M.

In 1950, when he commissioned the first edition of The Armed Forces Officer, Secretary of Defense George C. Marshall told its author, S.L.A. Marshall, that "American military officers, of whatever service, should share common ground ethically and morally." In this new edition, the authors methodically explore that common ground, reflecting on the basics of the Profession of Arms, and the officer's special place and distinctive obligations within that profession and especially to the Constitution.

Adapt or fail : the United States Air Force's role in reconstituting the Iraqi Air Force, 2004-2007

"Published by Air University Press in February 2017."
Prior to its involvement with the Iraqi air force in 2004, the US Air Force (USAF) was relatively inexperienced in helping to create an air force for a partner nation. Usually the partner nation would already have an air force and the requisite infrastructure--only needing better airplanes, more training, or additional spare parts for the equipment already on hand. None of those conditions were present in Iraq when the Coalition Military Advisory Transition Team (CMATT) was tasked to create an air corps for what the Coalition Provisional Authority called the New Iraqi Army.
