The article focuses on recent attempts made by the U.S. and Great Britain's military to hone the specialties of their separate service branches into a single, unified and synergistic fighting machine that could respond to a variety of assignments. These included any response for civil support in a domestic emergency to defense of the country from a nuclear attack. The development of this more fluid approach has been seen in many ways since the attacks of September 11, 2001 and the subsequent acts of terrorism worldwide.
