Colonel Givens examines three battles—1973 Yom Kippur War, 1972 Easter offensive, and1944 Normandy campaign—to test the validity of airpower operating as a maneuver force. He avoids wringing the concept through to the Persian Gulf War because of the heated feelings that arose during the analysis of that path-breaking campaign some 12 years ago. What is unique and instructive about this study i......

Specifically, U.S. forces will need better capabilities to secure a foothold in distant theaters, to defeat weapons of mass destruction and their delivery vehicles, to gain control of operations in the ......

In the future, NATO forces must be prepared to respond quickly to events in regions within and beyond its borders. This research addresses how this requirement will affect the organization of NATO forces, particularly airpower, by postulating two scenarios that would stress NATO to the extreme: (1) an attack by Russia on Poland, and (2) a Syria-Iraq attack on Turkey. The author uses these scenario......

The post-Cold War era has many implications for the way U.S. military forces will be sized, equipped, and balanced. The recent war in the Persian Gulf has given a new prominence to the role of airpower in that balance. The United States has, and is planning to maintain, overwhelming superiority in airpower. It is important to explore whether a U.S. military strategy based on airpower dominance is ......

Current estimates comparing wage growth in the military and civilian sectors suggest that military basic pay grew 11.8 percent slower than civilian wages from fiscal 1982 to 1991. Yet over the same period recruit quality and retention showed practically no sign of deterioration. The authors developed a new civilian wage index (the DECI) for military personnel designed to represent the active duty ......
