Abstract : This monograph investigates a gap in U.S. Army doctrine on the prevention of terrorist attacks. First, this monograph show that the goals, organization, and tactics of terrorist are a formidable threat to the Army. Second, it uses case studies from Great Britain and France to show that well trained and dedicated terrorists can bypass heightened security; and that terrorism is difficult, if not impossible to deter at the time and point of attack. Third, it uses case studies from Beirut and Saudi Arabia to show how U.S. policy can be affected by, terrorism, and to find what measures could been implemented by military commanders to deter those attacks.
