Abstract:

Both the Air Force and the Navy have separate service strategies which have been effective in articulating their perspectives and requirements. Currently, the Army does not espouse an independent strategy. This study will propose and analyze the effectiveness of an Army strategy within the framework of the national military strategy. The proposed strategy will focus on the strategic environment in the last decade of the twentieth century. The author proposes that the Army develop a force development strategy rather than an operational strategy. This strategy is based on several factors the changing strategic environment. fiscal constraints, a lack of priority in the national military objectives, and the uncertainty of predicting and justifying a threat.
