Abstract:

There is no current doctrine in the U.S. Army for the employment of an infantry division to encourage a faltering government. This need is recognized by the establishment of such a role for the ROAD division in fl 61-100, The Division. The capabilities of the ROAD division and the causes of government instability were analyzed in the light of four historical examples, and a doctrine was involved. The roles in which the ROAD division may be employed are studied show of force, truce enforcement, international police action, legal occupation, restoration of order, protection of personnel and property, and civic action.
