Three new documents from different sources provide varied looks at 'the way ahead' for the U.S. Navy and the Department of Defense, as of September 1, 2003. 'Forks in the Road for the U.S. Navy,' by Frank Lacroix and Irving Blickstein, is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the many challenges facing the Navy in the 21st century. These authors have done an outstanding job of listening to active duty and retired military experts as well as others in industry and academia to ascertain upcoming big decisions where multiple paths are possible but where, ultimately, Navy leaders must make an informed decision regarding which path to follow. 'The Limits of Transformation: Officer Attitudes Toward the Revolution in Military Affairs' is the most recent of the Naval War College's Newport Papers series.
