  • Reshaping the Expeditionary Army to Win Decisively: The Case for Greater Stabilization capacity in the Modular Force

    August 01, 2005

    Authored by Colonel Bryan G Watson.
    The author makes the case that U.S. strategy demands the U.S. Armed Forces build a force with greater capacity for conducting stabilization operations concurrent with combat operation. He traces the strategic roots of the stabilization requirement, develops a warfighting concept for "progressive stabilization," and makes judgments on whether the Army's current Modular Force effort will generate the right type of force. He concludes by making some recommendations on where the Army should adjust its current modernization effort to make the force more relevant.
