Abstract : This volume is the sixteenth installment in a series which covers the major mission activities of the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) on an annual basis. Taken together, these annual command histories furnish a diachronical analysis of the performance of the major Army command with primary responsibility for insuring the Army is ready for war, both today and in the future. Following the pattern of recent years, the TRADOC Annual Command History for 1991 consists of a narrative volume and several volumes of supporting documents. The narrative describes the command's major activities from the commander's perspective, focusing on mission support (to include TRADOC's support of Desert Shield and Desert Storm), doctrinal development, institutional training and training support, equipment requirements, force design, and leader development. The foundation of the narrative rests on the written materials generated by the headquarters in the day to day conduct of its business, and from oral interviews with persons having first hand knowledge of events. Footnotes provide references to source documents which are collected in supplementary volumes that are a part of the TRADOC Historical Research Collection. An important secondary source is the series of semiannual staff historical reports, which outline staff agency organizational structure and discuss major events and issues from particular staff agency perspectives; those reports are retained in the TRADOC Historical Research Collection.
