Excerpt

This study presents the results of research conducted as part of an Arroyo Center project on structuring U.S.combat capabilities for early conflict termination. The purpose of the overall project was to define the force capabilities and conditions best suited to deter a potential enemy or lead to his early defeat.

The research was sponsored by the Director of Strategy, Plans, and Policy, Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations (DCSOPS), U.S. Army.

This report is intended to provide an introduction to the coercive use of conventional military power for military and civilian professionals involved in the practical application of such power.
