The Stryker Brigade Combat Team: Rethinking Strategic Responsiveness and Assessing Deployment Optionsby Alan Vick
Synopses & Reviews
Examines alternative means to decrease the deployment time for the new Army medium-weight brigade, comparing air and sealift from the United States with air and fast (but short-range) sealift from forward bases or preposition sites. Historical experience and an assessment of U.S. regional interests are used to determine how much warning time the United States typically has before major force deployments and where it is most likely to deploy such forces
Book News Annotation:
This study of the Army's goal for capability of 96-hour deployment of motorized forces anywhere in the world concludes that in most cases such a deployment will require 5 to 14 days—a large improvement over historical deployment times for motorized forces. The study was sponsored by the Air Force and conducted by RAND, a nonprofit institute for research and analysis. The study should be of interest to the defense community, and to airmen and soldiers serving in plans, operational, analytic, and research and development. The book has no subject index.
