For over half a century, since Pearl Harbor brought the US into the Pacific War, America has been a dominant military power in Asia, challenged only by the then Soviet Union and China.

This is the first unclassified account of America's military stake and current defensive and offensive capacity in Asia. It analyses the role of US armed forces in Asia, including deterrent nuclear forces, in the context of defense policy and strategy. The possible future of US forces in the region is considered, taking into account recent developments in US domestic politics and their impact on the defense budget. The book also considers the views of Asian nations on America's continuing presence.

Each service is described: Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps along with the role these forces play in the theater strategy of 'Cooperative Engagement'.

This is the third title in the Armed Forces of Asia series, series editor Professor Des Ball.
