Research Paper Title
A Historical Review and Analysis of Army Physical Readiness Training and Assessment.
The Combat Studies Institute is excited to publish this work on the history of physical readiness training in our Army by Dr. Whitfield B. East, a Professor in the Department of Physical Education at the United States Military Academy at West Point.
This manuscript is part of CSI’s series of works that bring the scholarship of our academics from the Army’s schools into the larger discourse on military matters.
Dr. East’s work provides the reader an interesting and detailed historical recounting of physical readiness training in our Army. In doing so, he makes the case for the further development of physical training programmes with a greater emphasis on programmes built from scientific research.
