The Doomsday Podcast, Episode 5- Andrew J. Bacevich and the Pentomic Army

The 18th Airborne Corps Podcast

Feb 9: Episode 5: Andrew J. Bacevich AJ Bacevich is one of our nation’s most influential historians and prolific national security writers. A retired Army colonel, he’s Professor Emeritus of International Relations and History at Boston University. A renowned national security realist, Bacevich has written many books about global security issues. His 2008 book “The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism” is part of the Army War College curriculum. So, he’s a thoughtful guy and he has much wisdom to offer, But AJ joins the Doomsday Clock podcast to talk about his least-known book. Way back in 1986, while he was an Army officer, he wrote a short book about the Army’s post-Korean War pentomic structure. Doomsday Clock podcast host Joe Buccino talks with AJ about this odd, mostly forgotten period in Army history. What was the pentomic structure? Why did we organize in such a manner? Why was the idea scrapped so quickly? All these questions are answered in this episode.
