Sixty years of Reorganizing for Combat: A Historical Trend Analysis: U.S. Army
Throughout the 20th century, the U.S. Army has periodically reviewed the structure and organization of its primary combat unit, the division, to posture itself better to meet changing requirements. In Nov. 1999, Gen. Eric Shinseki, the Army Chief of Staff, directed the U.S. ArmyTraining and Doctrine Command to undertake just such a comprehensive review. In response, the TRADOC commander, Gen. John Abrams, began the development of a brigade-sized force capable of rapid deployment, yet with the staying power of the current heavy force. Toward that end, the Combined Arms Center tasked the Combat Studies Institute (CSI) to analyze four U.S. Army division/brigade restructuring initiatives that took place between the years 1960 to 1994 in an attempt to "determine critical historical insights gained and common themes from previous Army experiments germane to standing up the Prototype [Initial] Brigade." To provide a broader historical context and a wider range of key themes and trends that may be relevant to the current restructuring efforts, the CSI expanded itsefforts to include several additional restructuring initiatives that have occurred since 1939.
