The U.S. Army War College (USAWC) Strategy Conference each year addresses a major security issue of relevance to the United States and its allies. Recognizing that the ultimate symbol of the... More > nation’s commitment is “boots on the ground,” the USAWC focuses the Strategy Conference on the subject’s implications for ground power. The conference brings together top national security strategists, senior military leaders, media, university faculty, and the policymaking community to consider, discuss, and debate topics concerning America’s national security strategy. The 2006 conference was designed to help frame vital questions that offer insights on the conference theme: “A Nation at War.” The phrase “A Nation at War” evokes images of mobilization of the nation’s resources: military surely, but also the government, industry, and the population.

After that war, with an unrepentant Saddam Hussein still on the scene making threatening gestures, fourth and fifth problems―how to counter weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and how to conduct urban combat―came to the fore in the literature. Most recently, with the terrorist destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York and our continuing wars of reprisal against the Taliban in Afghanistan and against al Qaeda in that country...< Less

What is “grand strategy,” and why is it seemingly so important and so difficult? This monograph explores the concept of grand strategy as it has developed over the past several decades.... More > It explains why the concept is so ubiquitous in discussions of present-day foreign policy, examines why American officials often find the formulation of a successful grand strategy to be such an exacting task, and explores the ways in which having a grand strategy can be both useful and problematic. It illustrates these points via an analysis of two key periods in modern American grand strategy—the Truman years at the outset of the Cold War, and the Nixon-Kissinger years in the late 1960s and 1970s—and provides several suggestions for how U.S. officials might approach the challenges of grand strategy in the 21st century.< Less
