This chapter examines the unpreparedness of the U.S. Army for World War II because of the line branch chiefs' compartmentalized organizations and their refusal to adopt military mechanization strategies. The regular army and National Guard divisions were unable to reach full strength during the interwar period, or have the opportunity to engage in large-scale maneuvers to test cavalry doctrine, until 1940.

Keywords:   U.S. Army, World War II, military mechanization, National Guard, cavalry doctrine
