Abstract:

For the past eighteen years the United States Government has spent millions of dollars annually for military assistance to numerous friendly nations. These vast expenditures for military assistance are directly attributable to the Communist drive for world domination which became apparent shortly after World War II. The importance of the military assistance program today is such that the United States Government places great reliance on it to halt Communist encroachment worldwide. As a consequence, the purpose of this paper is to present and appraise in the light of the present day cold war situation, some of the military problems confronting the chief of the principal field organization of the military assistance program, the military assistance advisory group MAAG. Second, as a result of this appraisal, this study attempts to present solutions to some of the problems identified.
