U.S. Armyís Transition to the All-Volunteer Force, 1968-1974
Hardcover (no d.j.)
Robert K. Griffith, Jr. (au); John W. Mountcastle (fr). The all-volunteer force, the historic norm in peacetime Amer. from the colonial era to the eve of WW2, was reestablished on June 30, 1973, when induction expired. But never before had this nation attempted to field a standing Army in peacetime -- based on voluntary enlist. This volume takes us through those years of transition, esp. that of the Army, from virtual dependency on the draft to a manpower system based on volunteerism. Examines the broad context in which the end of the draft occurred & the perspective which the Armyís leaders brought to bear on the challenge they faced. Provides both a glimpse into the dynamics of the reciprocal relationship between the Army & soc. & a case study in the successful mgmt. of fundamental orgíl. change. Ill.
