Books the Army is reading
The Chiefs of Staff of the Army and of the Air Force have respectively begun publishing lists of recommended books for officers and enlisted personnel. Some Army units have carried this further and begun intensive discussion groups centered around reading materials. Col H. R. McMasters, author of "Dereliction of Duty: Lyndon Johnson, Robert McNamara, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Lies that led to Vietnam" leads discussion groups in the unit he trains for insurgency warfare in Iraq.
