Operation: S.I.N.: Agent Carter
Threats, witness intimidation, lack of evidence or just expensive lawyers. Sometimes the guilty walk free of the courts with a spring in their step and a smile on their face. With the changing, more transparent world looming on the horizon, one clandestine department of the London police force in the 1990s struggles to continue with its thirty year remit: to correct the mistakes of the courts.

The author of the acclaimed bestseller Area 51 reveals the explosive dark secrets behind America's post-WWII science programs. In the chaos following World War II, some of the greatest spoils of Germany's resources were the Third Reich's scientific minds. The U.S. government secretly decided that the value of these former Nazis' knowledge outweighed their crimes and began a covert operation code-named Paperclip to allow them to work in the U.

Stemming from an initiative to enhance the lives of serving members by providing them with the best education and training in military ethics before and after deployments, this volume will better inform politics and public policies and enhance the welfare of the soldiers, sailors, and airmen and women who serve in singular, often harsh, and sometimes dangerous conditions.
Suggests that the demoralizing effects on enemy troops of air operations can effectively shorten conflicts.
Hiroyuki Hirano s five pillars of the visual workplace: sort, set in order, shine, standardize and sustain are the most fundamental and often overlooked aspects in continuous improvement initiatives. Together, these concepts form the framework of the 5S System, a set of principles whose simplicity often betrays its powerful impact on the workplace. So much of the 5S System seems like common sense, that it is astonishing how often such seemingly simple practices are absent in manufacturing operations.

This report documents the modeling framework Project AIR FORCE (PAF) developed to analyze the support of combat operations in a denied environment. The models help illuminate combat support requirements, basing posture vulnerabilities, operational resilience, and capability trade-offs. Specifically, the modeling framework addresses four questions: (1) How does dispersed basing affect combat support resource requirements, and how many operating locations can be supported? (2) Where should combat support resources be stored and maintained to enable rapid deployment and employment of forces in the Pacific theater? (3) How vulnerable are U.
Future political and social upheaval on the African continent will continue to endanger U.S. citizens living abroad. Deployed Special Forces operational detachments are ideally suited to assist joint task forces in the execution of noncombatant evacuations. The central research question is: How did U.S. Army Special Forces contribute to the success of a joint noncombatant evacuation operation (NEO) in Sierra Leone? The first step examined the events of Operation NOBEL OBELISK and to a lesser degree Operation FIRM RESPONSE.
How can the Army train better at the operational level? This question addresses a lack of training at the operational level that has only become apparent in recent years. One of the reasons for such a shortcoming has been the reluctance of the US Army to acknowledge the operational level of war fighting. Real debate evolved during the 1980's and FM 100-5, Operations, did not list the operational level of war until the 1982 edition.
The late 1970s was an era that most, if not all, defense analysts agree was a period of a "hollow" Air Force. Many indicators drove this conclusion, including dips in equipment readiness rates and personnel, training, and logistics statistics. In the 1990s, the Air Force is experiencing similar dips in indicators. Senior Air Force leadership has drawn short of using "hollow force" to describe the current Air Force situation.
This study examines force structure options available to the United States Army to improve performance of its units in military operations other than war (MOOTW) without jeopardizing those units ability to fight and win two near simultaneous major theater wars (MTW). The study begins by establishing the need for increased MOOTW competency based on recent historical trends, realistic assessments of future threats, and existing strategic guidance.
Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm presented a tremendous challenge to ground transportation capabilities. Millions of gallons of fuel, hundreds of thousands of troops, thousands of tons of ammunition and other supplies, thousands of tanks, combat vehicles, and artillery pieces had to be moved hundreds of miles from the Seaports of Debarkation (SPOD) to Forward Logistics Bases within the theater of operation to support execution of the war.
The United States' Civil War ended in 1865. However, the post-conflict period immediately following, known as Reconstruction, lasted another twelve years. This era provides a great case study to examine the impacts of politics on military stability operations. This paper studies the Freedmen's Bureau during its existence from 1865 to 1872. Envisioned as the lead organization for integrating former slaves into American society, the Bureau's efforts in the post-Civil War South were undermined by a hostile political situation at the national and state level and a diminishing lack of popular support throughout the entire nation to embrace radical social changes.
Following the fall of the Taliban government in Afghanistan in late 2001, members of the former regime and Al-Qaeda found refuge in Waziristan. Waziristan is a tribal area in Pakistan located along the border with Afghanistan whose majority ethnic Pashtun population has menaced every occupying power since Alexander the Great. The formidable terrain coupled with the fierce independent character of the Pashtun tribes has made Waziristan a difficult area for outsiders to subdue.
As the U.S Army moves into the twenty-first century, technology will be used more than ever to enhance combat operations. Force XXI redesign uses technological enablers to enhance proficiency and situation awareness on the battlefield. These enhancements are needed to overcome reductions in equipment and personnel. Combat Service Support (CSS) on the battlefield must change in order to support faster moving operations and overcome limited resources.
Multinational operations have been the norm in warfare and information management between multinational forces has long been an issue within alliances and in coalition warfare. The ongoing Revolution in Military Affairs (RMA) in information technology (IT) and management (IM) has increased the level of difficulty associated with multinational information interoperability.
This study compares the United States use of military power to achieve political aims in Lebanon 1958 and the Dominican Republic 1965. The study uses the Strategic Analysis Model, developed at the Command and General Staff College, to integrate historical data to determine if alternative policy options existed. The alternative options are compared and contrasted against the option chosen to reveal lessons which may be applied to future crises.
