Distinguished military leaders evaluate the essential requirements to ensure U.S. national security for the next five to ten years. Generals and admirals of the army, the navy, the air force, and the marines describe the principal "risks," strategic obligations, shape, and sizing of forces; current constraints; and priorities and projections that must be considered if the United States is to respond to future military threats. This dialogue with top-level authorities answers fundamental questions and sums up lessons from Desert Shield/Desert Storm in terms of air-lift and sea-lift requirements, management and planning implications, force modernization, and technological advances.
