Abstract:

The author suggests that as we reflect on the challenges ahead, we may gain some insight by casting light on the challenges of the past. He traces the development of U.S. strategic appreciations, and the planning that went along with them, in the years prior to the American entry into the First World War. In his conclusions, the author discusses the ways in which the challenges faced by that generation of Americans were similar to the ones we face today.
