Theater Land Operations: Relevant Observations and Lessons from the Combined Joint Land Force Experience in Iraq

Theater Land Operations

Relevant Observations and Lessons from the Combined Joint Land Force Experience in Iraq

Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky, U.S. Army, Maj. Gen. Roger Noble, Australian Army

In 2016, the campaign to destroy the Islamic State as a fighting force while also pushing any remaining fighters out of Iraq was in full swing. The combined joint force land component command (CJFLCC) in charge of the joint fight during Operation Inherent Resolve was based on the headquarters of the 101st Airborne Division, but the mission differed notably from previous division-level efforts during the coalition-led counterinsurgency fight in Iraq.

Extending the Battlefield

Extending the Battlefield

General Donn A. Starry, US Army

The combined capabilities of acquisition, targeting and weapons systems available to the commander today are astounding. The author contends that these systems, supplemented by new ones being fielded, allow the commander to "see" far beyond the front line of troops onto an "extended" battlefield, a battlefield upon which the full potential of our weapons must be exploited if victory is to be attained. While the idea of the extended battlefield is not new, the author argues that the extended attack must be an integral part of every Army combat unit's capability.

Quite naturally, therefore, the threat against which the concept is designed is typified by the Warsaw Pact in Central Europe, the larger aggregations of mechanized forces in the Middle East or the threat from the north in Korea.
