Abstract:

The AirLand Battle doctrine provides the US Army an approach to fighting and winning against a numerically superior force. For the United States Army in Europe, realistic maneuver training is essential to effective execution of this doctrine. However, the inadequacy of maneuver space under US control dictates that maneuver training must be conducted in maneuver right areas on the German countryside. The high cost of maneuver damage coupled with ever growing environmental protection efforts by the host nation conflicts with this need and is USAREURS MANEUVER DAMAGE DILEMMA. This essay establishes USAREURS need to conduct maneuver training, explores the costs and problems associated with maneuver damage, analyzes USAREURS approach to the maneuver damage dilemma and provides insightand recommendations concerning this approach based on the experience of the author.
