Abstract:

The basic question is whether or not the implications of design of the Army War College curriculum are fully contained to afford the educational vehicle to produce fully-developed professionals for the US Army. Data were gathered using literature research techniques from source documents found in both the Army War College library and the Military History Institute, Carlisle Barracks, PA. Included in the documents are chronicles of the AWC, curricula outlines, historical writings of both English and American writers, and staff after-action reports of both instructors and students. Visits to the Civil War battlefields of Gettysburg, Antietam and the Wilderness were also conducted. A statistical section is provided, drawing a comparison between two periods inception to 1940 and 1950 to present. After thorough research it is concluded that one outstanding and significant item missing from the Army War College curriculum since 1950 is in the United States, Korea or Europe, would provide unlimited potential for enhancing the military knowledge of the American soldier and would further contribute to the national security of this nation.
