Review This Book
This study analyzes the pitfalls of accepting Army/Marine counterinsurgency (COIN) doctrine as the joint solution. It also offers insights and ideas from an Airman’s perspective for strengthening joint doctrine development in order to deliver fresh alternatives to our national decision makers and combatant commanders. Major General Dunlap’s assessment of Field Manual 3-24, Counterinsurgency—which regrettably reflects a one-dimensional, groundcentric perspective—is an impressive and influential document, skillfully addressing many difficult COIN issues.
