CoS Reading List – General Mark Milley, the Army’s Chief of Staff, has a selection of favorite books and publications for professional development. The books are suitable for readers of any rank or position.
The CoS reading list is divided into six categories:
- Strategic Environment
- Regional Studies
- History and Military History
- Army Profession
I must admit – there are not very many books on this list that I have read. (Not sure what conclusion to draw from that!). I tend to read books relating to the topics of counterinsurgency, Afghanistan, Middle East, hybrid warfare, special operations, and terrorism. I did, however, see a few that have my interest on the CoS reading list. Looks like I have a busy winter ahead.
