The second installment consists of Military Review, the house organ of the Army's oldest service school, now known as the Command and General Staff Course, aka "Leavenworth". It is designed for mid-career officers - majors, lieutenant colonels and colonels, what the Army calls field grade officers - and serves to prepare them for command of battalion and larger units and service on the general staff of a division or higher formation. Unlike the branch schools, Leavenworth brings together officers of all specialties to receive common instruction. For most officers, it is where their formal military schooling will end, but the top graduates of the course stay on for a year of post-graduate work at the School of Advanced Military Studies and are nicknamed the "Jedi Knights" by the rest of the Army. These are the "water walkers" who are considered the most promising to end up as senior officers, in effect it is similar to being the selected for the Great General Staff of the old Prussian and German armies.
