Military Review English Edition March-April 2015 | Page 2

With so many news sources
offering countless perspectives of
the many changes, tragedies, and
triumphs our nation and its military
face, sorting out fact and opinion
can be a challenge. As the director
of Military Review, my priority is
providing our audiences with dependable and accurate information. Military Review articles are based on
research and experience; our rigorous selection process
ensures they are from reliable sources.
We strive to keep our readers abreast of issues relevant
to the institutional, operational, and historical interests
of the Army Profession, and the feedback I’ve received
regarding this endeavor has been overwhelmingly
positive. Whether focused on improvements to Army
professional education, technological advancements,
women in combat, the human dimension, or the future
of war, I am confident our articles will continue to
keep our readers engaged and, perhaps, inspire them to
consider new perspectives.

Col. Anna R. Friederich-Maggard

This edition provides prime examples of articles that
will spur our readers’ interest. Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster,
deputy commanding general, Futures, U.S. Army
Training and Doctrine Command, and director of the
Army Capabilities Integration Center, presents his
thoughts on continuity and change. He believes every
commander understands, visualizes, describes, directs,
leads, and assesses operations based, in part, on his or her
understanding of continuities in the nature of war and
changes in the character of warfare. Jude Eden, a former
Marine, proposes that standards for combat-related
military specialties should not be lowered to allow the
inclusion of women into those assignments. These articles
feature unique perspectives on very different but relevant
topics. I am sure you will enjoy them both, as well as all
the other fine articles in our March-April edition.
