?Professional Military Education in the United States will be valuable to all PME commands. It provides a quick shortcut for junior officers and civilians overwhelmed by unfamiliar acronyms and confusing references to the plethora of military educational institutions, presenting hard-to-find historical background and a concise summary of each institution's responsibilities and vision. (Having it on my bookshelf will save the officers in my department from a lot of questions I would otherwise ask them.)?-Army History
