Abstract:

The current circumstances of nuclear plenty, for both the Soviets and the United States, and the approaching strategic parity tends to create stability at the strategic level and to bear importantly on both the likelihood of limited or regional wars in the future and the levels at which they may be fought. Examined herein is the current United States strategy for the employment of land forces in nonnuclear regional wars and how this strategy would be implemented in various regions of the world. Additionally, tenets of military strategy which are oriented toward the 1970-80 time frame and which may improve our capability to react promptly to meet our worldwide commitments have been identified.
