With the new year begun, we’re departing from our usual practice with War Books. Whereas we typically include five books selected by a featured guest, this week we’re highlighting the War on the Rocks holiday reading list. The list features seventy-three titles and makes for an excellent place from which to pick books to read this year to better understand war and strategy. From brand-new titles to classics on strategy to little-known gems, the list, compiled by suggestions from thirty-six experts in a range of subjects, is sure to contain a number of suggestions that appeal to MWI readers seeking a deeper understanding of the security challenges likely to feature most prominently in the near future—from Russia to the cyber domain, and from future battlefield technologies to the Islamic State.

Check out the full list at War on the Rocks.
