Abstract : Pressures working on defense structures of European NATO countries, particularly those of the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), tend to favor a change to latent conscript forces oriented toward territorial defense on one hand, standing volunteer armies on the other. Political, financial, and military potentialities of a combination of such forces are discussed, and a detailed comparison is made of territorial defense concepts and forces, as well as civil defense proparations, for four countries--Switzerland and Yugoslavia (which do not participate in NATO's Military integration) and Norway and France (which do so to a much lesser extent than the FRG).
