Army Chief of Staff’s Reading List

Army CoS Reading List

CoS Reading List – General Mark Milley, the Army’s Chief of Staff, has a selection of favorite books and publications for professional development. The books are suitable for readers of any rank or position.

The CoS reading list is divided into six categories:

  • Strategic Environment
  • Regional Studies
  • History and Military History
  • Leadership
  • Army Profession
  • Fiction

I must admit – there are not very many books on this list that I have read. (Not sure what conclusion to draw from that!). I tend to read books relating to the topics of counterinsurgency, Afghanistan, Middle East, hybrid warfare, special operations, and terrorism. I did, however, see a few that have my interest on the CoS reading list. Looks like I have a busy winter ahead.
