Abstract:

If the U.S. Armys current experience in ongoing overseas operations like those in Iraq and Afghanistan are any indication, reconstruction has become an integral part of the American way of war. And judging from the disappointing results of reconstruction efforts in these operations, measured mostly in terms of the effect that such efforts have had on the course of these wars, there is much lacking in the Armys understanding of reconstruction itself and the role that it will likely play in all future operations, especially in counterinsurgencies COIN.
