Abstract:

This study examines training requirements, principles of command and control, and organization for a U.S. light infantry unit involved in a peacekeeping operation. The focus is on the tactical level of peacekeeping, using the Sinai Multinational Force and Observers and the Beirut Multi-National Force as case studies. The study determines the component parts of a peacekeeping force and analyzes the basis principles of successful peacekeeping operations. The study states that peacekeeping forces must be highly trained soldiers who understand the nature and purpose of a peacekeeping mission. The study concludes that a peacekeeping force must have an effective chain of command ond commander and one force headquarters responsible for the peacekeeping operation.
