May 3, 2023
Please answer one of the following three questions:
- The world continues to await the much-heralded Ukrainian “Spring Offensive.” What factors will determine the tactical, operational, strategic, and political success of that offensive? What are your expectations?
- Many analysts suggest that “AUKUS” deal has changed the landscape of technology cooperation and defense statecraft in the Indo Pacific. Evaluate the promise and peril of AUKUS; what risks and rewards does it hold for the United States?
- Evaluate the course of the Russia-Ukraine War from the perspectives of landpower, seapower, airpower, spacepower, and cyberpower. Which domains have proven most important to the conflict thus far? In which domains has the course of the war upset the expectations of analysts?
