Thomas-Durell Young, director of CCMR's EUROPE program, has recently published an article entitled "Stripping the Altars of Long-Term Defense Planning.'"  Full text here, courtesy of War on the Rocks, 11 January 2018.

The article asserts that the current practice of long-term defense planning appears to be different than what was originally envisioned by its creators, and maintains that built-in flexibility is paramount in future calculations.
