Investment in Small Tactical Units vs Big Weapons Systems
Retired MG Robert Scales has wrote an article entitled "Small unit dominance" which has been published in Armed Forces Journal (October 2010). In the article he presents the argument that we spend billions of dollars on complex weapons systems yet ignore the common infantryman who actually fights and dies in our wars. He advocates a reallocation of resources towards the man on the ground who fights and dies.
