The October 2014 revision of the The U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence reading list
(source) The overarching purpose of this list is to gain understanding through the reading of foundational texts. There are many books and essays on military history, leadership, ad world events that are worth reading. This list distinguishes, for Military Intelligence Professionals, a fine selection of reading material from a larger body of literature. The list is divided into three sections: Professional Development, History & Heritage, and Global Analysis. Each section encourages the reader to take a critical look at the lessons of the past, at the changing world around them, and within themselves in order to learn and grow as an Army Professional.
