Though nations for thousands of years have been wrestling with the challenge of Joint operations, we're still trying to get it right.
As an island nation with significant global interests ashore, the USA has a rich history of doing Joint right, and blind parochialism as well.
Using this as a starting point, this Sunday for the full hour we will have returning guest, John Kheun.
Dr. John T. Kuehn is the General William Stofft Chair for Historical Research at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College. He retired from the U.S. Navy 2004 at the rank of commander after 23 years of service as a naval flight officer in EP-3s and ES-3s. He authored Agents of Innovation (2008) and co-authored Eyewitness Pacific Theater (2008) with D.M. Giangreco, as well as numerous articles and editorials and was awarded a Moncado Prize from the Society for Military History in 2011.
We will also discuss his latest book, just released by Praeger, A military History of Japan: From the Age of the Samurai to the 21st Century.
