Abstract : This monograph presents a theoretical study which identifies peacekeeping training requirements for a light infantry force at the platoon and squad levels. Two important assumptions made in this study are: (1) the Army will continue to train for war--to fight and win in combat--as its primary mission; and (2) the Army will train for war using the Battle Focused Training concept. With the rise in peacekeeping missions, this study focuses on identifying peacekeeping training requirements using the Battle Focused Training concept. This monograph presents an analysis into the nature of peacekeeping operations, and current Joint, Army, and International doctrine on peacekeeping in order to develop a theoretical mission statement for a peacekeeping force. Further analysis of this mission statement and current guidance deduces a peacekeeping Mission Essential Task List (METL) from which supporting collective tasks are identified.
