Abstract:

This monograph examines how sustainment force multipliers work to optimize force capabilities during peacetime contingency operations. The concept of force multipliers is a key element of U.S. Army doctrine that asserts we can fight with limited resources and win. As we shift our focus from Europe to other regions of the world, this concept will be valuable for designing and planning complex peacetime contingency operations during an era of constrained resources.
