Occupations, Cultures, and Leadership in the Army and Air Force
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
Most discussions of culture in the military services concern the relationship between military and civilian culture. Comparatively less interest has been shown in the cultural differences among the military services them selves, although there is considerable informal and anecdotal often humorous discussion of such differences within the services. In his 1989 book, The Masks of War, Carl Builder focused on personality differences among the services. and discussed the implications of those differences for defense policy. C. Kenneth Allard offered an insightful look at service culture in his thorough analysis of the past and future of jointness in our defense establishment. In the United, the relatively recent separation of the Air Force from the Army, coupled with the rapid rise of the Air Force as a powerful, independent institution since World War II, offers a unique opportunity to explore the organizational cultures of these two services, and to better understand the implications of culture on leadership styles in each of the services.
