Mastering the Profession of Arms

Australian Army officer Mick Ryan recently released the second article of an interesting three-part series entitled "Mastering the Profession of Arms" for War on the Rocks.

Ryan says he based the series on U.S. and Australian experiences, and he offers three propositions in the articles.

"In [the] first installment," he said, "I propose that there exists an enduring nature of the profession of arms. In the next installment, I propose that there are seven key drivers for contemporary changes in the competencies required in the profession of arms. Finally, in the third installment, I propose that there are seven essential and evolving competencies of the military professional in digital-age warfare."
