Abstract:

We are the best trained and equipped Army in the world. We have fought and struggled during many wars and conflicts. Although we have a record of success in most conflicts we have often stumbled out of the starting block due to our training, lack of foresight, and often because military planners or politicians miscalculated. This paper will convey that importance of preparedness in time of peace, which will enable quick military successes in the future.
