In Lifting the Fog of Peace, Dr. Janine Davidson explains how the American military has adapted itself to succeed in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq that are the most likely future face of combat. The book is informed by her experience of these wars in the Department of Defense, where she now plays a critical role in continuing the process of learning that has so visibly marked the military's performance in today's wars. Highly recommended. ---John A. Nagl, President, Center for a New American Security U.S. military officers throughout Iraq and Afghanistan spend their days worrying nearly as much about municipal power, water purification, trash collection, and jobs programs as they do about fighting the war. Although running elections, building roads, and governing cities have been perennial duties for U.S. soldiers for over 230 years, this generation has had to adapt and relearn lessons on the fly. Lifting the Fog of Peace puts the U.S. military's frustrating experiences in Iraq into context and reveals how the military was able to turn the tide during the socalled surge in 2007-8. Janine Davidson is Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense, Plans. She has served as Director of the Department of Defense's Stability Operations Capabilities.
