Since the ROK and North Korea stand face to face in the Korean Peninsula, there has been constant concern about the risk of war. In this situation, prevention of war on the Korean Peninsula is much more important than anything else. It is feasible when the balance of conventional military forces is kept. The purposes of this thesis are to compare each side's ground forces as major military strength, to develop the ROK ground force structure planning for ground force balance of the ROK against North Korea, to identify the important factors for reinforcement of ground forces in wartime, and to present the Combat models considered for the Korean Peninsula. In addition to those it proposes the U.S. presence in Korea and the improvement of early-warning capabilities.
