Abstract:

Canada is now in the process of implementing a reorganization plan which is intended to result in a greater degree of unification of its military services than has been undertaken by any other developed nation. This step beyond the frontier of traditional and contemporary military organization will provoke widespread interest in other nations if it is successful in achieving the aims of the Canadians. The paper 1 reviews the course of the proposal to unify the Canadian Armed Forces, 2 evaluates the wisdom of the decision and the prospects for successful achievement of its aims in Canada, and 3 examines the probable impact upon defense organization in other countries.
