Abstract : This essay capitalizes on the experiences of the 2d Armored Division (US) during REFORGER 80. Using both a preceeding CPX and the subsequent FTX, the author describes the experiences of the 2d AD while it was subordinate to the British 1st Corps in NORTHAG to describe the international coordination problems in the areas of liaison exchanges, passage of lines and command, control and communications. The essay describes the preparations and the actual activity. Using the description as a basis, he then focuses on these areas essential to the successful conduct of the activity. Much of the success was achieved as a result of efforts beyond what is called for in normal US doctrines and organizations. (Author)
