Description
 
Robert K. Griffith, Jr. (au); John W. Mountcastle (fr). Takes readers through the turbulent years of transition from drafting young men for service in the U.S. armed forces to the all-volunteer force. Never before had this nation attempted to field a standing Army in peacetime -- based on voluntary enlistments -- with the worldwide responsibilities that faced this force. This transition was accomplished nearly simultaneously with the withdrawal from Vietnam & the subsequent partial demobilization. Examines both the broad context in which the end of the draft occurred & the less well known perspective which the Army’s leaders brought to bear on the challenge they faced. Illustrated.
