The Theme of the Naval War College's 1977 Current Strategy Forum was "U.S. Policies and Naval Forces in the Pacific, 1977-85." In this paper, adapted from an address he gave at that Forum, Professor Marshall discusses the strategic significance of the area, considers the triangular relationship of the United States, the Soviet Union, and China and the interests pairing them in cooperative or competitive combinations, and reminds us that planning for the future is chancy business.
