NEWPORT, R.I. - Dr. Milan Vego, professor of Joint Military Operations at the U.S. Naval War College, spent four days in Hamburg, Germany, lecturing on various aspects of theory and practice of operational warfare at sea to students at the Fuehrungsakademie d. Bundeswehr, or Germany's senior military academy, Sept. 27-30.
A contingent of 15 naval officers, including one from France and one from the Netherlands and a few faculty members, received ten hour-long lectures as part of the Navy’s Section seminar entitled Joint Vision 2011. Vego is a leading expert on maritime operational warfare which is the study of strategic objectives. Students evaluated the lectures in seminar and presented a summary of their discussion in daily briefings.
Sponsored by the German military, Vego’s lectures have become an annual staple of the curriculum of the Navy's section. This is the fourth year the academy has requested that maritime operational warfare be the focal point of Vego’s lectures.
Vego has published more than 300 articles in various journals and periodicals, and authored seven books on topics in maritime operational warfare.
