Abstract : This essay addresses the issue, 'Can the United States mobilize to meet a sustained war in Europe?' In addressing this issue, I examined the three major components of mobilization. First the Reserve Components, are they ready? The next aspect I looked at was once we have mobilized the Reserve Components, can we get them over there? The last aspect was once we got the forces over there, can we sustain them? In this last area both the expansion of the training base and the industrial base were examined. (Author)
