The REFORGER 88 Certain Challenge field training exercise took place under the 'AirLand Battle' doctrine, at the army group level and was led by two corps: V (US) Corps and VII (US) Corps. It became the largest ever exercise of the REFORGER manoeuvre series, approximately 125,000 soldiers were involved: American, German, Canadian, French and Danish. The command and umpire sections alone were 10,000 strong. In the field were 15,000 wheeled vehicles, 7,000 tracked vehicles (including 1,095 M60, M1 Abrams, Leopard 1 and Leopard 2 MBTs), 795 anti-tank missile launchers, 400 artillery pieces, 92 M270 multiple-launch rocket systems and 631 helicopters (including 200 combat and anti-tank helicopters).
This publication tells the story of the exercise in great detail and shows the involved military equipment in many action-oriented and hitherto unpublished photographs.
