The Afghan Campaign

James M. Dubik, Frederick W. Kagan, and Kimberly Kagan

Hertog Foundation | 2015

In this Advanced War Studies Course, Drs. Frederick and Kimberly Kagan, who spent 15 months in Afghanistan working with General David Petraeus and General John Allen, will examine the debates surrounding America’s campaign in Afghanistan. Balancing history, theory, and military strategy, this seminar will consider the U.S.-led coalition’s objectives, the lasting legacies of the Cold War, and the
specificities of Afghanistan’s tribal society and regional dynamics.

Advanced War Studies Courses are open only to alumni of the basic War Studies course. These sessions are offered in the winter and summer, and focus either on a national security challenge or on a historical conflict. Learn more about the War Studies Program.
