The Breckinridge Papers, 2022

 

The Breckinridge Papers began six years ago as a way to gain dissemination of studies carried out by students attending the Marine Corps War College (MCWAR), the School of Advanced Warfighting (SAW), the Command and Staff College (CSC), the Expeditionary Warfare School (EWS), and the College of Enlisted Military Education (CEME). Faculty committees of civilian PhD and military officer members conducted a review and either nominated or rewarded each paper in this volume. In addition, many of the authors gained distinguished-graduate status at the end of the academic year.
