Abstract : Today's battlefield, much expanded and highly lethal, requires better staffs at lower levels than ever before. The ability of battalion commanders and staffs to combine arms effectively in order to gain an edge over the enemy in future engagements is essential. Their successor failure will have a major impact upon higher units and the Army altogether in the next war. Whether today's battalion staffs can meet the emmense combined arms challenges likely to exist on the modern battlefield is the main issue of this monograph.
