Abstract:

The purpose of this paper is to document work by the US Army Soldier Support Center SSC which was performed in response to the following taskings a Establish EPWCI rates for NATO forces in a defensive posture. b Establish EPW factors for the rear battle. FM 101-10-1, Staff Officers Field Manual Organization, Technical, and Logistical Data July 1976, provides tables and guidelines for predicting the number of EPWs and CIs in a future conflict. The German forces on the Eastern Front experienced an average EPW capture rate of .00035 prisoners per combat soldier per day during the period Oct 42 through May 44. The historical data produced a composite EPW rate resulting from a mix of combat intensities experienced during the twenty month sample period over a 3,000 kilometer front. For use in FASTALSForce Analysis Sumulation of Theater Administrative and Logistics Support, CAA Concepts Analysis Agencys requested that this factor be distributed across four levels of combat intensities i.e., intense, moderate, reduced, and reserve, which have specialized definitions for use in the model.
