MISSING IN ACTION IN THE QDR:
A UNIFYING VISION FOR U.S. LAND FORCES

SUMMARY

In this article, originally published in the Small Wars Journal, Professor Freier acknowledges that the current era of land force ascendancy has witnessed significant changes in mission (e.g., irregular warfighting like Counter-Terrorism, Counter-insurgency, and Stability Operations). He also believes that future land interventions are unavoidable. But, he argues, the circumstances under which they occur, the operating concepts employed in their execution, and the objectives pursued throughout their course may be substantially different than those that shape current warfights.
