Adaptation Under Fire

Grant Year: 2017


David Barno and Nora Bensahel will research and write a book exploring whether the U.S. military is sufficiently “adaptable under fire” and how the armed services could improve their adaptability to cope with the demands of an increasingly unpredictable strategic environment. They will examine the subject of military adaptation and analyze how this attribute can be cultivated through improvements in military doctrine, support for technological innovation, and leadership development.
