Main Description
How should the Army transform to meet the new strategic challenges?
Unpaid Annotation
A wide range of threats span the globe and challenge national and international security. How is the U.S. Army changing to fulfill its role in light of the new national security strategy? How did the attacks of September 11, 2001, alter or accelerate the need for change? Fourteen RAND analysts with broad experience in strategic and Army planning have undertaken to answer these questions. They examine the Army's role in the offensive war on terrorism; the Army's homeland security needs; the implications for the Army of the increase in emphasis on the Asia-Pacific region; the Army's role in coalition operations; the unfinished business of jointness; the lessons to be learned from recent Army operations; deployability, logistical, and personnel challenges; and whether the Army's far-reaching program for change, called Army Transformation, is on the right track.
Unpaid Annotation
Today's strategic environment is evolving; a wide range of threats span the globe and challenge national and international security. How is the U.S. Army changing to fulfill its role in light of the new national security strategy? How did the attacks of September 11, 2001, alter or accelerate the need for change? Fourteen RAND analysts with broad experience in strategic and Army planning have undertaken to answer these questions. They examine the Army's role in the offensive war on terrorism; the Army's homeland secur-ity needs; the implications for the Army of the increase in emphasis on the Asia-Pacific region; the Army's role in coalition operations; the unfinished business of jointness-the lessons to be learned from recent Army operations; deployability, logistical, and personnel challenges; and whether the Army's far-reaching program for change, called Army Transformation, is on the right track. This book is nothing less than a call for the U.S. Army to change and a prescription for what needs to be done. It should be of interest to anyone concerned about the future of the U.S. military in general and the U.S. Army in particular.
