Description

The transformation of V Corps from a traditional tank-heavy corps committed to a high intensity battle in central Europe to a lighter, more deployable reaction force simply based in central Europe is an exemplar of the changes that confronted the army at large to be sustained.  This narrative outlines the major shifts in the operational context in which V Corps found itself after 1990 and discusses the major military operations in which the corps took part. Those operations gave the headquarters the essential “feedback” to adjust its organization and training to be more in synch with the requirements it faced.  The study offers some tentative conclusions about the process of transformation of the Army in Europe, as seen from the perspective of one heavy, mechanized corps.

Audience

This publication is recommended to those engaged in demanding and important tasks on behalf of the Army, and also to any reader who wishes to gain some understanding of the complexity of U.S. Army, Europe, and operations after the end of the Cold War.
