Political Indoctrination in the U.S. Army from World War II to the Vietnam War (Studies in War, Society, and the Military) (Hardcover), by Christopher S. DeRosa. University of Nebraska Press (December 1, 2006).
DeRosa draws on the records of the army and the Department of Defense’s information offices, the content of the indoctrination materials themselves, and soldiers’ recollections in analyzing the political messages the nation conveyed to its army during three decades of conscription. He examines how the program took root as an army institution, how its technique evolved over time, and how it interacted with the larger American political culture. In so doing, he explores the implications of trying to impose a political consensus on the army of a democracy.

The Coveted Black And Gold: A Daily Journey Through the U.S. Army Ranger School Experience (Hardcover), by John, D. Lock. For more than 200 years, U.S. Army Rangers have earned their unrivaled reputation as the world's premier warriors with bravery, blood, and sacrifice. Being a Ranger is a function of attitude and a state of mind, as well as a matter of skills and training, and it is the mission of the U.S. Army Ranger School to meld and to fortify these attributes. Ranger School is a journey that must be taken one day at a time...and each day of that journey is captured in this book. It is the cumulative effect of each of those days, the arduous work, the deprivation, the misery, that leads to what is ultimately called "the Ranger School experience."  Information

The U.S. Army/Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual (Paperback), by John A. Nagl (Foreword), David H. Petraeus (Foreword), James F. Amos (Foreword), Sarah Sewall (Introduction). University of Chicago Press; University of Chicago Press Ed. / edition (July 4, 2007)
When the U.S. military invaded Iraq, it  lacked a common understanding of the problems inherent in counterinsurgency campaigns. It had neither studied them, nor developed doctrine and tactics to deal with them. It is fair to say that in 2003, most Army officers knew more about the U.S. Civil War than they did about counterinsurgency. The U.S. Army / Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual was written to fill that void. The result of unprecedented collaboration among top U.S. military experts, scholars, and practitioners in the field, the manual espouses an approach to combat that emphasizes constant adaptation and learning, the importance of decentralized decision-making, the need to understand local politics and customs, and the key role of intelligence in winning the support of the population. The manual also emphasizes the paradoxical and often counterintuitive nature of counterinsurgency operations: sometimes the more you protect your forces, the less secure you are; sometimes the more force you use, the less effective it is; sometimes doing nothing is the best reaction.  An new introduction by Sarah Sewall, director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, places the manual in critical and historical perspective, explaining the significance and potential impact of this revolutionary challenge to conventional U.S. military doctrine. An attempt by our military to redefine itself in the aftermath of 9/11 and the new world of international terrorism, The U.S. Army / Marine Corps Counterinsurgency Field Manual will play a vital role in American military campaigns for years to come.The University of Chicago Press will donate a portion of the proceeds from this book to the Fisher House Foundation, a private-public partnership that supports the families of America’s injured servicemen.

When You're Asked to Do the Impossible: Principles of Business Teamwork and Leadership from the U.S. Army's Elite Rangers (Hardcover), by Anthony J Le Storti. When You're Asked to Do the Impossible is a powerful guide for high-intensity, high-stakes teams in business, healthcare, government, education, and other areas of life. The first book to translate the operating principles of the U.S. Army's elite Rangers into guidelines for teams in civilian life, this book establishes that to do the "impossible" individuals and teams must be developed to the highest professional levels, must be well led, must be exceptionally well prepared and supported -- and must be able to succeed in the face of everything gone wrong. The proven principles and lesons here stand against the bureacratic inertia, power plays, mediocracy, slovenly ethics, and defense of the status quo that hobbles modern efforts in most fields. They challenge leaders and team members at all levels to develop new ways of thinking, communicating, and interacting in order to achieve the "big wins" that are out of reach of most organizations. When You're Asked to Do the Impossible paints a no-nonsense picture picture of just how good teams can be, as it presents the principles and characteristics of some of the highest performing teams in the world.  Information
