An Army Ready to Fight the Next War
Since the unconditional surrenders of both the Germans and the Japanese in 1945, something that was infused during the commencement and the termination of American wars also proved to have affected the conduct of war. Although Americans are familiar with the notions of winning and losing, indeterminacy remains to be a confusing concept. In addressing the question of how the post-Vietnam Army was able to win the Gulf War and who should be accredited for this transformation, the appropriate yet short answer would be how the American soldiers were able to fix the army. Most military analysts would associate this fixing to some degree to Bill DePuy during the 1970s and the 1980s while others would perceive him to be the reform movement's central figure.
