Abstract:

The basic question is dependent upon the nature of the military and non-military threats to the U.S. and factors influencing our strategy in general and limited war, including fiscal restraints, Congressional hesitancy and lack of popular support. Concepts of employment and the Armys relationships with NATO which permit it to fulfill its obligation to National Security were examined. Composition and relationships of NATO and the Warsaw Pact were discussed. Consideration was given to the MBFR negotiations and detente, as well as the possible effect of oil shortages, in justifying the essential role of United States forces in Europe. Author
