This chapter examines the situation of post-war Germany and the development of the U.S. Constabulary. It mentions the opinion of Brigadier General Albin F. Irzyk of the Fourth Armored Division of the U.S. Army that, after the defeat of Germany, a staggering achievement occurred when a new organization was created mainly from armor and mechanized cavalry elements. He was referring to the new police-security organization called the U.S. Constabulary, which was expected to be lighter and more mobile than the mechanized cavalry.

Keywords:   post-war Germany, U.S. Constabulary, Albin F. Irzyk, mechanized cavalry, police-security organization
