North America : time for a new focus by Council on Foreign Relations( )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"North America was once called the New World. The people, their ideas, and the resources of the continent shaped the histories of the Old World -- East and West. Today, North America is home to almost five hundred million people living in three vibrant democracies. If the three North American countries deepen their integration and cooperation, they have the potential to again shape world affairs for generations to come ... The people of North America are creating a shared culture. It is not a common culture, because citizens of the United States, Canada, and Mexico are proud of their distinctive identities. Yet when viewed from a global perspective, the similarities in interests and outlooks are pulling North Americans together. The foundation exists for North America to foster a new model of interstate relations among neighbors, both developing and developed democracies. Now is the moment for the United States to break free from old foreign policy biases to recognize that a stronger, more dynamic, resilient continental base will increase U.S. power globally. 'Made in North America' can be the label of the newest growth market. U.S. foreign policy -- whether drawing on hard, soft, or smart power -- needs to start with its own neighborhood"--

The U.S. Army/Marine Corps counterinsurgency field manual : U.S. Army field manual no. 3-24 : Marine Corps warfighting publication no. 3-33.5 by United States( Book )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 not unfair to say that in 2003, most Army officers knew more about the U.S. Civil War than they did about counterinsurgency. This volume 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. A 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."--Back cover
Spycraft secrets : an espionage A-Z by Nigel West( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tradecraft is the term applied to the techniques used by intelligence personnel to assist them in conducting their operations and, like many other professions, the espionage business has developed its own rich lexicon. In the real, sub-rosa world of intelligence-gathering, each bit of jargon acts as a veil of secrecy over particular types of activity, and in this book ... West explains and give[s] examples of the lingo in action"--Page 4 of cover

Report to Congress on the situation in Iraq by David Howell Petraeus( )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the testimony of General David H. Petraeus, Commander of the Multi-National Force-Iraq, to Congress on 10-11 September 2007. General Petraeus begins by stating that the military objectives of the surge are, in large measure, being met. In recent months Coalition and Iraqi Security Forces have achieved progress in the security arena. Though the improvements have been uneven across Iraq, the overall number of security incidents has declined in 8 of the past 12 weeks, with the number of incidents in the last two weeks at the lowest level seen since June 2006. One reason for the decline in incidents is that Coalition and Iraqi forces have dealt significant blows to Al Qaeda-Iraq by taking away a number of their sanctuaries and gaining the initiative in many areas. They also have disrupted Shia militia extremists, capturing the head and numerous other leaders of the Iranian-supported Special Groups. Coalition and Iraqi operations also have helped reduce ethno-sectarian violence, bringing down the number of ethno-sectarian deaths substantially in Baghdad and across Iraq since December 2006. The number of overall civilian deaths also has declined during this period, and Iraqi Security Forces have continued to grow and to shoulder more of the load, albeit slowly and amid continuing concerns about the sectarian tendencies of some elements in their ranks. In what may be the most significant development of the past 8 months, the tribal rejection of Al Qaeda that started in Anbar Province and helped produce such significant change there has now spread to a number of other locations as well. In this security assessment, General Petraeus reviews the nature of the conflict in Iraq, recalls the situation before the surge, describes the current situation, and explains the recommendations that he has provided to his chain of command for the way ahead in Iraq. Fourteen briefing charts accompany the testimony
Hunting the Caliphate : America's war on ISIS and the dawn of the strike cell by Dana J. H Pittard( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this vivid first-person narrative, a Special Operations Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) and his commanding general give fascinating and detailed accounts of America's fight against one of the most barbaric insurgencies the world has ever seen. In the summer of 2014, three years after America's full troop withdrawal from the Iraq War, President Barack Obama authorized a small task force to push back into Baghdad. Their mission: Protect the Iraqi capital and U.S. embassy from a rapidly emerging terrorist threat. A plague of brutality, that would come to be known as ISIS, had created a foothold in northwest Iraq and northeast Syria. It had declared itself a Caliphate-an independent nation-state administered by an extreme and cruel form of Islamic law-and was spreading like a newly evolved virus. Soon, a massive and devastating U.S. military response had unfolded. Hear the ground truth on the senior military and political interactions that shaped America's war against ISIS, a war unprecedented in both its methodology and its application of modern military technology."--

Zandhappen : generaal in Afghanistan by Mart de Kruif( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in Dutch and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In het najaar van 2007 wordt Mart de Kruif gevraagd om als generaal-majoor de leiding op zich te nemen van de International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Zuid-Afghanistan. Voor Nederland bestaat Afghanistan op dat moment vooral uit Uruzgan, waar een Nederlandse taskforce is gelegerd, maar dat is slechts een kleine provincie in een uitgestrekt gebied waar uiteindelijk 45.000 militairen uit 24 landen actief zullen zijn. De Kruif zegt "ja', maar pas daarna dringt tot hem door hoe enorm de taak is die hij op zich heeft genomen. Een jaar lang verblijft hij in een prachtig maar verscheurd land. Het is een ervaring die hem definitief zal veranderen, als militair en als mens."
