Lessons of War
These reports record, assess, and analyze knowledge gained from U.S. military experiences in a rapidly evolving warfighting environment. Reports in this section are informed by a wide array of inputs, from U.S. military and civilian ground experience to comparison to historical data and trend analysis. Implications on future warfighting and war planning constructs — as well training, equipment, and personnel asset requirements — are all brought to bear. Issues covered in these reports include but are not limited to, ongoing lessons of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; lessons of international cooperation in counterterrorism; lessons of the Global War on Terror; and lessons of intelligence successes and failures.
