The US Army Center of Military History (CMH) is hosting the Army Historians Training Symposium (AHTS) from 27-31 July 2015 at the Crowne Plaza National Airport in Crystal City, Arlington, Virginia. The symposium is open to Army and DoD historians and professional historians from other government agencies, academia, and the public.

The 2015 AHTS is a bi-annual event dedicated to the professional development of the military historians of the Army History Program and to the furtherance of the study of military history. The symposium consist of training workshops focused on key aspects of the Army History Program, presentations of papers, and discussion panels. The theme of this year's symposium is "Adapting to Peace; Preparing for War; Responding to Crisis: An Unworkable Triad?" with a focus on post war demobilization and restructuring, preparing for the next conflict, and the role of history in preparing forces during periods of relative peace. Papers presented at the panels will be published by CMH.


Additional presentations will be added as they become available.

The U.S. Army Operating Concept: Win in a Complex World

The Army Operating Concept (AOC) describes how future Army forces will prevent conflict, shape security environments, and win wars while operating as part of our Joint Force and working with multiple partners. The AOC identifies first order capabilities that the Army needs to support defense strategy. It provides the intellectual foundation for future force development, establishes a framework for learning, and guides the implementation of what we learn under Force 2025 and Beyond.
