SSI Live 070 – Great Power War: Personnel and an Expanded Army

Released 5 July 2017.

Is the Army ready for a ‘Great Power War’ against a peer competitor, in terms of personnel? If the Army had to double in size, what challenges would it face in terms of expanding its personnel pool? What steps should the Army consider to overcome these hurdles? Over the last nine months, an interdisciplinary team of Army War College student researchers, under the direction of Dr. Tony Echevarria, have examined issues related to great power war and whether the Army is ready. One of those team members, LTC Chad Bridges, a resident student at the War College, joined Dr. John R. Deni to discuss SOF and an expanded Army.
