This chapter examines the leadership and the organizational levels of the mechanized cavalry of the U.S. It discusses the changing doctrine, technique, and missions caused by adjustments made as a result of the chaos, tensions, and demands of warfighting. The chapter also highlights the replacement of the traditional reconnaissance stealth sneak-and-peek doctrine with one that emphasizes defensive and offensive combat, special operations, security, and fighting for information with combined arms elements called task forces.

Keywords:   mechanized cavalry, U.S., cavalry doctrine, sneak and peek, offensive combat, defensive combat, special operations
