In 1994, Congress chartered a Commission on the Roles and Missions of the Armed Forces to examine whether these functions were adequate to meet the challenges of the post-Cold War era. In June 1995, the Commission concluded that military forces should be prepared to do more than their traditional missions of deterrence and fighting wars. The Commission determined that they military can and should play a larger role in crisis management and conflict prevention, known as peace operations, and that an overall American strategy for peace operations is now needed. This bok includes the most salient papers prepared for the Commission.
