Focus on the Middle East

ARMOR is building a “library” of knowledge from Middle East experts. Most of that library features the work of U.S. Navy Commander Youssef Aboul-Enein, who is an instructor at National Defense University. (Find his Webpage here hosted by the Naval Institute: https://www.usni.org/author/cdr-youssef-h-aboul-enein-usn.) Many articles in our Middle East library are courtesy of our “sister” maneuver journal, Infantry magazine. Alphabetically, the articles are:
