Paperback: $15.97
Prints in 3-5 business days
Over the last 25 years, the center of gravity concept has grown increasingly central to the U.S. military’s warfighting doctrine. It has been hailed by each of the Services and the Joint... More > community as the cornerstone of the operational art; and it has come to occupy a common place in the vocabulary of professional soldiers. It is somewhat surprising, therefore, that, over the last quarter-century especially, the term has come to have so many different meanings. In this monograph, the author, Lieutenant Colonel Antulio Echevarria II, cuts through the myriad interpretations surrounding the concept and gets back to the original idea as conceived by its author, the Prussian military theorist, Carl von Clausewitz. In going back to the original concept, Lieutenant Colonel Echevarria reveals that Clausewitz intended the center of gravity to function much as its counterpart in the mechanical sciences does, that is, as a focal point.< Less
The Army And Homeland Security: A Strategic Perspective By Antulio J. Echevarria II & Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $14.51
Prints in 3-5 business days
The topic of homeland security includes a broad array of missions and mission areas ranging from national missile defense to military assistance to civil authorities. Recently the topic has attracted... More > a great deal of attention due to the public’s heightened awareness of the variety and nature of emerging threats and of the United States’ vulnerabilities to them. This monograph, written by Lieutenant Colonel Antulio J. Echevarria II, grew out of a tasking by the Army Staff to investigate the Army’s role in homeland security from a strategic, rather than a legal or procedural perspective. The author achieves this perspective by placing homeland security missions within the larger spectrum of operations. In so doing, he exposes potential problem areas—missions requiring more or different force structure than that already available—for further action by the Army.< Less
Toward A Strategy Of Positive Ends By Antulio J. Echevarria II & Huba Wass de Czege
Paperback: $14.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
Defense planners and strategists have recently proposed a variety of alternatives for America’s role in what many see as a dramatically different international situation. Most of those... More > proposals, though, continue with a Cold War paradigm of trying to foresee what the next threat might be and how the United States might best prepare itself to respond to it. Consequently, the possibility of taking advantage of the intrinsic dynamism of the new security environment in order to create conditions that might promote positive ends—long-term peace, stability, and prosperity—has remained largely overlooked. In this monograph, the authors, Brigadier General (Retired) Huba Wass de Czege and Lieutenant Colonel Antulio J. Echevarria II, make a case for a strategy aimed at achieving positive, rather than neutral or negative, ends. They first discuss the dynamic conditions of the new strategic environment, then explore the options the United States has available for dealing with those conditions.< Less
Rapid Decisive Operations: An Assumptions-Based Critique By Antulio J. Echevarria II & Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $15.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
Most experts agree that no genuine military transformation or revolution will occur without a corresponding change in operational concepts. Merely replacing old equipment with new is not enough.... More > Militaries must also develop new ways to link tactical actions to strategic ends. For this reason Rapid Decisive Operations (RDO), an emerging concept currently under development by the Joint Futures Lab (J9) of Joint Forces Command, is particularly important for the transformation of U.S. military forces today. An innovative and viable concept will not only stimulate the development of new technologies; it will also help balance the advantages and disadvantages that the introduction of such technologies always entails. On the other hand, a flawed concept will only lead to frustration in training and disappointment in combat as results fail to match expectations.< Less
