Overview

The U.S. Army again faces a major turning point. Having proven in the Gulf War that it has fully recovered from its post-Vietnam low, it must adapt to the high-technology challenges of the Information Age in a post-Cold War world of reduced defense expenditures. The last time the Army was drastically downsized - just after World War II - the result was the nearly catastrophic rout of its forces in Korea. This is a lesson that forward-thinking soldiers, such as the author of The U.S. Army in Transition II, have not forgotten. Former chief of the Army's armor forces and coauthor of the landmark 1973 work The United States Army in Transition (I), Lt. Gen. Frederic J. Brown was one of the key thinkers behind the Army's recent successes. His latest book establishes the next creative framework for dealing with the tough issues facing today's custodians of U.S. landpower. It will stimulate discussion among all concerned with America's security at this watershed in world history.
