The New Balance: Limited Armed Stabilization and the Future of US Landpower - Nathan P. Freier, Strategic Studies Institute
The author takes a critical look at the mission assignment and orientation of US landpower. He calls for an unconventional revolution in US land forces that optimizes them for intervention in complex and violent crises of governance and security in states crippled by internal disorder. In the end, he argues that the armed stabilization of states and regions in crises will be not just equivalent in importance to traditional warfighting in future land force planning but instead the primary land force mission for the foreseeable future.
