Exploring how the U.S. military can move beyond Iraq and Afghanistan

Despite its lengthy war fighting experience and high-technology weapons, the military is woefully unprepared for future wars because of a conflicted legacy of long involvement in war without end and uncertainty about the future security environment. But the United States cannot simply hit the reset button. If the U.S. military seeks to win in the future, it must acknowledge and reconcile with the inheritance of its long and failed wars. This book seeks to help them do so.
