16 March 1960: New Draft

This is the first completed revision of the Concept document by the working group. The document has been thoroughly revised, now containing seven sections. Notable additions include an entire section entitled “Transition From Peace to War,” and a section each for the “Concept of Operations in the Initial Attack Phase” and the “Concept of Operations Following the Initial Attack Phase.” The document is also now written with “positive language” as a CSC Directive, as opposed to the “persuasive” language of the original Concept document.
