This chapter examines the replacement of the speak and peek doctrine of the U.S. cavalry with one developed around equipment on hand in order to address the war-fighting requirements of World War II. The industry participated in the development of new platforms for the mechanized force and an officer school was established to deal with tactical and leadership issues. The deployment of cavalry in North Africa and Italy at battalion or squadron and troop levels brought out a disagreement over the new meaning of cavalry.

Keywords:   cavalry doctrine, U.S., World War II, war fighting, mechanized force
