Air power and maneuver warfare by Martin Van Creveld( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2003 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors identify and discuss the fundamental concepts and principles of maneuver warfare, compare and contrast it to attrition-style warfare, and trace its origins and history. They examine the role of airpower in enhancing maneuver during the early German campaigns of World War II, in Germany's 1941 Russian campaigns, and in the Soviet version of maneuver warfare in World War II. They analyze the importance of airpower in maneuver warfare employed by Israel in the 1967 and 1973 wars and by coalition forces in the Gulf War. Dr. van Creveld forecasts what the role of airpower will be in warfare during the coming years. The book includes a response to the authors by the air doctrine analysts at Air University

NATO military policy : the constraints imposed by an inappropriate military structure by Steven L Canby( Book )

4 editions published between 1969 and 1972 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crucial assumption underlying many of NATO's policy dilemmas -- MBFR, escalation, burden sharing, and the like -- is the absence of conventional parity with the Warsaw Pact forces. Conventional parity would provide NATO with new and attractive options. The paper argues that NATO's conventional inferiority has occurred because NATO's strategy, force posture, and operating practices do not mesh with each other, whereas the Warsaw Pact's do. Specifically, U.S. and NATO forces are not designed for the stated strategy, are structured on outdated assumptions, and use unnecessarily expensive operating practices. This explains the paradox that while NATO's population, GNP, military budget, and military manpower levels are considerably greater than the Warsaw Pact's, the Warsaw Pact enjoys undisputed conventional superiority
The budget cost of a volunteer military by Steven L Canby( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The document considers that an all-volunteer military with the combat effectiveness of a 2.65-million-man draft-induced force would cost only $2.1 to $2.5 billion more yearly, including longevity and retirement. Short-run budgetary phasing-in costs are stated at about $.75 billion--a fraction of earlier estimates. Less training and fewer officers are said to be needed. The Army's distinctive recruitment problem is analyzed separately. Lowest-category men are seen to be always in oversupply, and need no further attraction. The number of U.S. males turning 18 each year has increased sharply since 1964. Selective enlistment bonuses are recommended to offset the Army's recruiting disadvantage. Because of perceived pay and depressed wage levels for entrants, results are insensitive to changes in youth unemployment and supply elasticity. (Author)

The evolution of NATO with four plausible threat scenarios by Jean Edward Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

NATO is not "sui generis." Its roots trace to an informal Western alliance that dates from the early 19OOs. The geographic, politi- cal, economic, cultural, and ethnic ties that bind the countries of the northern Atlantic are ineluctable. Accordingly, the Alliance is unlikely to disappear or disintegrate. Part I of this study analyses the historic antecedents of NATO. Part II postulates four possible military threats that confront the Alliance in Europe today: a surprise attack; a pre-emptive non-surprise attack; a full-mobilization offensive; and a limited attack against an isolated NATO component
