Abstract:

The debate within the US Army on the efficacy of the full spectrum operations training strategy is critical to preparing Army forces to fight in the 21st century. The challenges for the Army following a decade of counter-insurgent warfare and stability operations combined with reduced fiscal flexibility and dynamically adaptive enemies make this debate critical for the future capabilities of land force dominance. Based on a contextual analysis of national defense documents and their relation to theories of the character of 21st century warfare this monograph examines the US Army full spectrum training strategy and its effectiveness to produce forces capable of operating in a full spectrum conflict. A comparison of the training strategies of Israel and Britain provide an empirical context that allows for further analysis of the efficacy of the US Army training strategy.
