Structure and Format of the â€œCritical Reviewsâ€
Using the components of the critical review (introduction, main body, conclusion), You will answer the following questions in your essay. The essay must be no more than 750 words.

2. What are its strengths/weaknesses of this article?
3. How are these relevant to your future as a military leader?
Please make sure the essay is no more than 750 words. This critical review is more of an analytical essay. I am trying to make sure you understand the chapter, clearly pick the thesis of this chapter, and then you clearly identify the strengths and weaknesses of the chapter in terms of how well the thesis is supported. Make sure your conclusion paragraph restates your thesis, summarizes what you just talked about in your essay. The essay needs to be organized and flow well for the reader. Thank you
