Summary
From the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, 1950-1975.
"Here is a documentary of the Army's role in 1960. It is a tabulation of both the Army's achievements as well as its mission in maintaining a worldwide war deterrent while improving its readiness to meet the challenge of tomorrow. One important feature in this film presentation is its complete report on the modernization of the Army in its organization, tactics, thinking, personnel practices, and operations, stressing also the materiel and personnel needs and requirements of the Army for the present and the future. Stress is placed on the necessity for effective control and rapid movement of individual soldiers and units to enable the Army forces, in any kind of war, to apply manpower and firepower at the decisive points, and in the degree necessary to ensure success on the battlefield."--National Archives and Records Administration.
