Birrer-Brookes Award

Article excerpt

Sponsored by the United States Army Command and General Staff College Foundation, the Birrer-Brookes Award recognizes the author of the "most outstanding thesis" from each graduating Master of Military Art and Science degree cohort of the Command and General Staff School. The name of the award honors the contributions to CGSC of Dr. Ivan Birrer and Dr. Phillip Brookes. Dr. Birrer nurtured the concept of a Master of Military Art and Science degree for CGSC from its initial proposal in the early 1960s through its formal authorization in public law in 1974. Dr. Brookes took over the helm of the program in 1978, guiding it through the process of growth and maturation until his retirement from the College in 2003. The Faculty thesis committee chairpersons submit nominations for the award to the CGSC Graduate Faculty Council, which in turn forms a panel of scholars to review and rank the nominated theses. Each winner receives a specially engraved CGSC chair courtesy of the CGSC Foundation. The first recipient of the Birrer-Brookes Award was Major Egil Daltveit from Norway, a member of the 2007-02 CGSS cohort.

The Birrer-Brookes Award winning thesis for each academic year along with the other nominees are all available through the Combined Arms Research Library at the following link: http://cgsc. …
