LANDPOWER ESSAY (ELIHU ROOT) AWARDS
These annual awards are for the two best articles on the strategic role of Landpower published in The U.S. Army War College Quarterly, Parameters, as judged by that publication’s editorial board. A first place award of $3,000 and second place award of $2,000 are provided. The goal is to promote critical and original thinking on the strategic role of Landpower in modern warfare, not only among the students and faculty at Carlisle Barracks, but also throughout the U.S. Army, and the Nation. Parameters is a refereed journal of ideas and issues, providing a forum for mature thought on the art and science of land warfare, joint and combined matters, national and international security affairs, military strategy, military leadership and management, military history, ethics, and other topics of significant and current interest to the U.S. Army and the Department of Defense. It serves as a vehicle for continuing the education and professional development of graduates of the U.S. Army War College and other senior military officers, as well as members of government and academia concerned with national security affairs.
