Abstract:

The role of the army in 1960 is explored in this episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series.

An important feature of this film is the complete report on the modernization of the Army in its organization, tactics, thinking, personal practices, and operations. The report stresses the material and personal needs in addition to the requirements of the Army for the present and the future. The film explains that effective control and rapid movement of individual soldiers to enable the Army forces to apply manpower and firepower at the decisive points ensure success on the battlefield.
