There's a great document the Army put out in 1963 looking back at the lessons learned during the Berlin Crisis and Cuban Missile Crisis build-ups. It's got a lot of interesting lessons for how the big wheels were looking at preparing for the next crisis (and maybe war).

(It's a three-parter.)

My basic assumption (I know, ass out of you and me, yada yada, we're talking about an imaginary conflict) is that the ROAD reorganization never gets carried through as the Army desperately tries to activate, man, and equip the units on active duty as well as reserve component formations. Everything listed here is still on the "Pentomic" or ROCID TOE from circa 1960 through late 1963.
