Cutting Back to a Minimal Military?

The guys over at Defence and Freedom have another great column today, with some pretty robust examples of how a training military might work for a medium-sized, modern, Western country.

The thing is, this plan really isn't all that different that the way the US military operated for a long time, as chronicled in A Country Made by War by Geoffrey Perret.

The Reichswehr worked like that for a few years, too! They saved even more because they weren't allowed to have the expensive toys either.
