Abstract : Emerging from early 20th century wars with conceptual frameworks for combined arms warfare, the interwar German and Soviet militaries developed warfighting capabilities that integrated the capabilities of historically distinct arms and delivered decisions on the battlefields of World War II. In both militaries, the development of these decisive capabilities was made possible by two feats of military innovation. First, the German and Soviet militaries defined new Contexts for war. Second, both militaries engineered combined-systems revolutions to field forces able to operate across those contexts. To field a Joint Force capable of operating across a multi-domain context in the 21st century, the U.S. military must do the same.
