Poised to Defend: Rebalancing US Force Posture in Europe and Beyond

  • Atlantic Council 1030 15th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20005 United States (map)

The United States and its allies are facing some of the gravest international security threats since the end of the Cold War. A range of conventional and hybrid challenges, from Europe’s east to the Korean Peninsula, are becoming increasingly urgent and require an effective response from the United States. But with the US Army’s current force posture reflecting a vision laid out fifteen years ago, US strategic positioning requires a rethink.

In his latest study, “Rotational Deployments vs. Forward Stationing: How Can the Army Achieve Assurance and Deterrence Efficiently and Effectively?”, Dr. John R. Deni of the US Army War College, lays out why the US Army must rebalance its force posture through a tailored increase in forward stationing.
