Publishing partners produce wide variety of military titles

Thursday, March 8, 2018

The Association of the U.S. Army’s Book Program, part of AUSA’s Institute of Land Warfare (ILW), is an important part of ILW’s mission to inform and educate association members, local and national leaders and the American public in general on the nature of land warfare and the U.S. Army’s role in defending the nation.

AUSA works with publishing partners to produce quality books about Army heritage, military theory and policy, and military force in the modern world.

This past year featured a wide range of titles, with most focused on American military history and biography.

We have memoirs by noted military commanders such as Ranger: A Soldier’s Life by Col. Ralph Puckett and WWII operational histories like Sabers through the Reich: World War II Corps Cavalry from Normandy to the Elbe by William Stuart Nance.

The Book Program also examines other military forces to pick up valuable insights, from understanding Russian ideas of command and control, in the Soviet General Staff series edited by Richard W. Harrison, to seeing the Israelis’ effective response to surprise attack in At the Decisive Point in the Sinai by Gen. Jacob Even and Col. Simcha B. Maoz.

To promote values such as leadership, we offer titles such as The Art of Command, Second Edition: Military Leadership from George Washington to Colin Powell, edited by Harry S. Laver and Jeffrey J. Matthews, with a new foreword by Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.

AUSA members can get these books at a discount when they order directly from our publishing partners: Naval Institute Press, University Press of Kentucky, Casemate, and Helion & Company.

Links for all Book Program titles can be found on our website.

We are always on the lookout for authors seeking to publish quality military books.
