Abstract:

Under the direction of the chief of Staff, U.S. Army, the U.S. Army War College and the Military History Institute have developed a program entitled Division Command Lessons Learned. This program, to date, has resulted in interviews and resulting transcripts and summaries from over thirty division commanders throughout the U.S. Army. This study examines and analyzes these transcripts to determine dominant problem areas that are beyond the division commanders authority or capability to resolve. The analysis follows the identified Chief of Staff, U.S. Army, interest areas of readiness, training, doctrine, field operations, organization, equipment, installation management, leadership, ethics and family action. The analysis concludes with a summary of determined problem areas, recommendations for solutions an follow-up actions, and conclusions.
