Dominating Duffer's Domain Book Cover

Dominating Duffer's Domain: Lessons for the 21st-Century Information Operations Practitioner.

  • Added to "DoD-Wide Published Works," "Other/Civilian Authors & Organizations" section on this website.
  • This Rand "report" for OSD is written in the style and tradition of an important military teaching text: The Defence of Duffer's Drift. Dominating Duffer's Domain follows the style of its inspiration by using narrative to show what not to do, followed by a demonstration of the correct application of principles, in a simplistic, satirical, and humorous style, as a compelling and sound teaching method. The booklet does for information operations (IO) what the original did for defensive tactics: effectively communicates timeless principles while also persuading readers of "the tragic results of ignoring such principles."
  • The DoD IO Center for Research staff strongly endorses this booklet for anyone who doesn't know the importance and necessity of integrating IO into operations. It is a quick, concise, entertaining, and informative read.
