Abstract:

The U.S. Army War Colleges Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute and Strategic Studies Institute are pleased to offer this important study on key considerations for DoD as it works through the on-going defense review. Mr. Freier outlines eight principles for a risk management defense strategy. He argues that these principles provide measures of merit for evaluating the new administrations defense choices. This monograph builds on two previous works - Known Unknowns Unconventional Strategic Shocks in Defense Strategy Development ADA489100 and The New Balance Limited Armed Stabilization and the Future of U.S. Landpower. ADA496368 Combined, these three works offer key insights on the most appropriate DoD responses to increasingly unconventional defense and national security conditions. This work in particular provides DoD leaders food for thought, as they balance mounting defense demands and declining defense resources.
