Steven Canby's Model for the Future Defense of Central Europe
ARMY COMMAND AND GENERAL STAFF COLL FORT LEAVENWORTH KS
Pagination or Media Count:
The purpose of the study was to critically examine Steven Canbys concept of an improved NATO military doctrine and organizationequipment with particular attention to the impact of MBFR. This study finds some serious objections to Mr. Canbys concept of defense of Central Europe as outlined in Adelphi Paper No. 109. Particular attention is drawn to Canbys proposed system of unit replacement, concept of defense, mobilization concept and restructuring plan. While supporting Mr. Canbys objective of strengthening the conventional defenses, this study concludes that Mr. Canbys major points are so interconnected that once one flaw is found, the entire structure tends to come crashing down. An alternative operational concept is offered.
