In the early morning of February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine. Since then, Western countries have increased their attention to the situation in the Taiwan Strait. However, as of the writing of this book, most Taiwanese people do not know how the government will recruit reserve troops once a war across the Taiwan Strait begins. Where will the reservists defend? How will the people respond to this war?
In fact, the United States, which has long been selling weapons to Taipei, has long complained about the reserve combat capabilities of the Republic of China. In 2017, the Office of the U.S. Under Secretary of Defense for Policy asked the RAND Corporation, a think tank that mainly provides research and intelligence analysis services to the U.S. military, to conduct an assessment of the Republic of China’s reserve forces and related policies. At that time, the RAND Corporation wrote an article The report stated that "the Reserve Command of the Republic of China does not have the necessary budget resources to strengthen regular actual combat training to maintain the skills of reserve personnel. In addition, the brief rotation training plan also prevents new recruits from the reserve service from receiving adequate and Rigorous training", "The Republic of China's current reserve training methods may be suitable for many non-combat support personnel in the system, but the combat readiness of the reserve forces in the event of a full-scale invasion by Communist China appears to be insufficient." After five years, has the military of the Republic of China improved?
