The transformation of V Corps from a traditional tank-heavy corps committed to a high intensity battle in central Europe to a lighter, more deployable reaction force simply based in central Europe is an exemplar of the changes that confronted the army at large to be sustained. This narrative outlines the major shifts in the operational context in which V Corps found itself after 1990 and discusses the major military operations in which the corps took part. Those operations gave the headquarters the essential feedback to adjust its organization and training to be more in synch with the requirements it faced. The study offers some tentative conclusions about the process of transformation of the Army in Europe, as seen from the perspective of one heavy, mechanized corps.

Military strategists, leaders, and professionals engaged in the task of refining the U.S. Army's organization, roles, and missions, as well as those who wish to gain an understanding of the complexity of post-Cold War operations, will want to review Kirkpatricks' invaluable microcosm of change.
