Publisher Description

Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, this unique book uses a case study of World War II Pacific theater logistics and basing to evaluate the Army's role in the air/sea battle concept.

With the end of the Iraq War and drawdown in Afghanistan, the United States (U.S.) is shifting strategic focus to the Pacific Ocean and countries therein. Reliant on its carrier fleet and air power for power projection, the U.S. envisions a future combat environment where a belligerent nation attempts to prevent these forces from success, through anti-access and area-denial strategies. This concept is formulated into the Air/Sea Battle concept, which relies on U.S. technological advantages to ensure access. The strategy does not adequately address the logistical needs of the joint services, nor does it account for increasing lethality in ballistic anti-ship missile technology. Improved capabilities in anti-ship ballistic missiles increase the range from which a carrier group can safely operate, placing greater importance on ground based aircraft and bases. The U.S. Army's role in Air/Land Battle is to establish and defend numerous Pacific bases and support naval/air forces, prior to decisive action.
