Military Transformation Uplink: March 2006
Militaries around the world are moving to modernize and transform themselves to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Our mission is to deliver a monthly cross-section of relevant, on-target stories, news, and analysis that will help both experts and interested laypeople stay up to speed on key military developments and issues.
