Added August 01, 2005
Reshaping the Expeditionary Army to Win Decisively: The Case for Greater Stabilization capacity in the Modular Force. 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.

Multinational Land Forces and the NATO Force Structure Review. Authored by Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
While there are arguably sufficient reaction forces to support NATO Ministerial Guidance, there are numerous weaknesses that would, and have, inhibited the efficient and effective deployment of land forces in crises.

The Future Roles of U.S. Military Power and Their Implications. Authored by Dr. William T. Johnsen.
Only after the future roles of the U.S. military have been determined can the Department of Defense turn to the other important issues posed by Congress. Dr. William T.

The method and manner of carrying out those roles, however, will change.
