Abstract : A major issue, today, is whether or not changing the U.S. troop deployment posture in Europe in the 1970's would enhance the security and stability of that region. The paper explores a strategic doctrine for 'Shadowboxing Forces'. The growing pressure for reduction of U.S. armed forces, the increasing political and economic development of Western European unity, and the atmosphere of East-West detente mitigates the adjustment of the U.S. military deployments in Europe and the Mediterranean areas.
