Overview

This text is designed to explain and synthesize the functioning and relationships of numerous Defense, Joint, and Army organizations, systems, and processes involved in the development and sustainment of trained and ready forces for the Combatant Commanders. It is designed to be used by the faculty and students at the U.S. Army War College (as well as other training and educational institutions) as they improve their knowledge and understanding of "How the Army Runs." We are proud of the value that senior commanders and staffs have placed in this text over the years and are pleased to continue to provide this reference. In the introduction, Army Commandant Cucolo states:

You need this handbook. If there was ever a time when leaders and staffs - military and civilian - needed a guide to understand our systems and process it is right now. Having been in a continuous state of conflict for the past 12 years and entering a history-impacting era of scarcity, you must use this reference to be an effective steward of our profession. This updated volume, the 29th Edition of How the Army Runs; A Senior Leader Reference Handbook, 2013-2014, is exceptionally relevant. Leaders who understand and can use the systems and processes documented and explained in this work will be able to keep the United States Army the best fighting force in the world, even in the face of uncertainty and declining resources.

Most of us were "raised" in this profession to find the best terrain - the key terrain - and then seize it or control it. Teammates and fellow leaders, this document, the intellectual understanding of how the Army runs, is key terrain for service at the senior leadership level. The worst thing you could do is put this on a shelf, bury the CD in a drawer, or ignore the vibrant and updated web site. Open up this handbook - see what is here - look for those areas that impact your current duties. Then, highlight and dog-ear and bookmark as you must: this should be a well-worn, frequently-consulted source of information close by your work station. Consider this your "how to fight" manual as you seek to manage momentous change and the impact of that change on our organizations, units and institution.
