Abstract:

This study discusses, first, the reasons why the professional soldier should produce articles and books on strategy and international affairs. The lay scholar is then compared with the professional soldier to determine whether or not the military has the capability for such an effort. Included in this comparison are statistics from a questionnaire intended to provide data on working environments of the civilian scholar and the professional soldier. Development programs considered include career programs, sabbaticals and fellowships, and a miscellaneous group which can be termed on-the-job scholarship. The talent required, the working environment needed, and the advantages and disadvantages of each proposal area discussed. Final conclusions are drawn and a program recommended which is feasible and which could be instituted immediately.
